One for Herbert Mundin Fans
16 August 2012 | by See all my reviews

An unusual role for Gilbert Roland finds the actor like a fish out of water. Without his usual accent, he seems a little lost. Nevertheless, he gives the role a good try, although he allows Mona Barrie (sporting a most unattractive hair style which she keeps in place throughout the entire movie) as well as Herbert Mundin (either singly or together) to steal all the scenes in which they appear with him. Other players, including Adrienne Ames also have a good try at the spotlight – all at Roland's expense. The screenplay tends to be over-talkative, but fortunately it has a large cast to keep things moving, a fine photographer at the helm to contribute atmosphere, competent direction by Lucky Humberstone, and a mystery plot that is sufficiently intriguing to keep an audience's attention for 69 minutes. Unfortunately, although the lead up to the climax is strong, the actual confrontation itself (as well as the explanation) is weak. In fact, this disappointing conclusion negates a lot of the picture's appeal, even though Herbert Mundin makes a good try to save the day. All the same it's a weak wind-up to a picture that was developing (despite all its little faults and errors of emphasis) into a first-class "B". One pleasing item to report, however, is that, despite his comparative prominence in the cast, Mr Toones's role is extremely small. Blink, and you'll miss him!
