Thoroughly delightful

I'm a real fan of pre-code poverty row films. Most are just average but Twin Husbands really shines. The set-up has been used before and, famously, much later in 36 Hours. However, the main character's reaction is not. Taking the situation in hand he works through the situation with efficiency and humor. The plot has many twists and turns which he uses to his advantage. Eventually we find he is a master thief dealing with amateurs. He solves at least 3 crimes and wins the girl.

John Miljan is terrific in the role. I've seen him as heels and good guys, mostly in supporting roles but always effective. Here he has a role that seems written exactly to his strengths. As an honorable thief we like him almost immediately, root for him and forgive him his past. I've seen quite a few stars try this turn and not carry it off as well. Highly recommended.
