With an independent air
13 January 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

I've said it before that I could watch Ronald Colman on scene reciting the Monte Carlo phone directory. But in a role tailor made for him he's magnificent.

I can't think of anyone else who could have played the part of the gallant Russian exile prince who now drives a taxi in Paris. His fellow exiles chip in some money to him and send him off to Monte Carlo as the song goes with an independent air. And apparently a lot of luck because the becomes the proverbial Man Who Broke The Bank At Monte Carlo.

But as tradition demands it the casino wants him to honor the house with a chance to get even. And Colman's not having any of that. So the casino manager Montagu Love sends out an agent and her handler in the persons of Joan Bennett and Colin Clive to get him back by fair means or foul.

I think you can see where this is going, but the devil may care exile prince fits Colman better than that glove fit OJ. Colman fans should appreciate his performance in a film that while not one of his classic roles is one totally suited to him.
