One for Harry Semels's legion of fans!
15 October 2012 | by See all my reviews

Yes, Harry Semels has a major role in this one with lots of close-ups in which he can huff and puff to his heart's content. Jack Mulhall is the nominal star, but although he is playing a Grand Duke Ludwig of Germany, he doesn't even make the slightest attempt at an accent. Not that it matters. Accent or no accent, he's totally unconvincing. As for Sally of the Subway herself, Dorothy Revier's role is actually rather small. No wonder Alpha used the movie's alternative title, "The Case of the Black Pearl", for their DVD release. The film's real heroine is the lovely Blanche Mehaffey who plays the happy employee who is always fired when some mishap occurs. That's actually her job -- and that's the one touch of originality in the all-talk-and-little-action story and screenplay concocted by George B. "Andy Hardy" Seitz. Both excitement and production values are minimal. P.S. George Hayes plays a police detective, but I doubt if a single fan in the world would recognize their "Gabby".
