"B" Murder Mystery With a Plenteous of Identifable Names
6 March 2008 | by (California) – See all my reviews

Affairs of a Gentleman is a mystery/romance, whodunnit style film about the mysterious death of a notoriously candid author from Universal Pictures starring a gargantuan amount of recognizable names from the '30s such as Paul Lukas, Leila Hyams, Patricia Ellis, Phillip Reed, Onslow Stevens, Lilian Bond, Joyce Compton and Dorothy Burgess. The film is told in flashback style and for the vast majority appears in the high-rise apartment building of our murder victim, the suave Victor Gresham (Paul Lukas), who has written a scandalous autobiography detailing his numerous affairs, with no regard to the feelings of the women involved. The police begin investigating these women and it all sets about during a publisher's party for the author. Therefore, several of Victor's ex-girl friends appear at the party and he smoothly entertains them.

For the most part, Edwin L. Marin's Affairs of a Gentleman is that of a b-grade murder mystery that possesses a somewhat stagey, artificial quality, though a plentiful of twist and turns to keep our curiosity engaged, as well as the characters being generated quite effectively, which in result the film is leisurely paced. Beautiful blonde Leila Hyams gets top female billing and is most certainly playing a far more edgy and boldly assertive character then one might be use to seeing her play. However, her screen time is rather limited and is quite possibly outshined by two other strikingly beautiful ladies in Patricia Ellis and Dorothy Burgess. With that being said, Affairs of a Gentleman is the probability of interest to fans of the films leading stars, particularly that of the women, and shouldn't garner much attention or interest to anyone unknowing of the films leading stars.
