The showing on 5 December 1932, was a preview and had no hand-tinted sequences. The film was scheduled for a 25 December 1932 release nationally, but it was held up so that some sequences could be tinted. See more »
I've got to admit my initial attraction to this movie was the fact that Bela Lugosi was in it...going in for that reason, this film will prove a disappointment as Bela's role is a relatively short one.
Despite this, I have to admit to enjoying this somewhat fanciful murder mystery which has the detective writer as the hero and ultimately a more competent detective than the real thing. This story about a murder on a movie set still feels more like a movie than real life..but the murder mystery does keep you guessing and interested which means it's certainly worth a watch.
