I'm confused
22 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was watching this film for the first time today and I could swear I saw the bank robber shoot the actress. I was therefore befuddled when the wife admitted the murder to her husband. Am I crazy? Why did she confess?

Other than for this confusion, I thought the film well acted. Adolphe Menjou is always worth watching - as suave a gentleman as you'll find anywhere. Ruth Chatterton was also admirable, if soft-pedalled most of the time.

Like another commentator, I, too, was pleasantly surprised by the thwarting of the always-annoying Hays Office. I can only guess that Francoise's saving of the child's life near the end was sufficient evidence of goodness to placate the prissy Mr. Hays.
