The Trap Drummer
17 December 2006 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Joan Bennett's father lost his fortune in the stock market crash and now she earns her living as a hostess at her ex-butler's speakeasy and ekes out her income as a hostess for hire for country weekends -- no funny business. Of course she falls in loves with penniless artist Ben Lyons and that's two sides of the triangle. The third is John Halliday, who wants her as his mistress, but is gentlemanly about it.

Misunderstandings and complications ensue. Halliday is excellent, Halliwell Hobbes, as Miss Bennett's boss is fine and Ben Lyons is, well, a little too monotonous and he and wife Bebe Daniels would depart for England and radio in a couple of years.

But Miss Bennett is excellent. She had quite a career at Fox, with a wide variety of roles. Very interesting for an actress, if not enough of a type to build up a real star personna. Here she plays.... well, the character that Myrna Loy would play at MGM during her starring phase, starting with her turn as Nora Charles in THE THIN MAN. The similarity is amazing and I wonder if Miss Loy based her character on Miss Bennett's turn in this movie.
