Murders on a cruiser
10 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie makes me wonder anew how it was that Robert Taylor became such a star. It has to be his looks as his screen persona is, to me, always bland. That said, I'm glad I saw this movie. I found the best part to be the verbal sparring between Nat Pendleton and Ted Healy. Although I recognized many in the cast (especially fun seeing Keye Luke and Ward Bond), I missed reading the opening credits and quite frankly did not recognize Ted Healy and even had I seen his name, I would not have recalled the Three Stooges connection. I remember thinking during the movie "Gee, this guy is really good." So my favorite part of the movie is the one another reviewer found most annoying. Una Merkel as Toots was good but too overtly grasping and Jean Parker was inadequate to the task. I liked Parker in the Kitty O'Day movies but not in this one. The mystery itself is uninspired and basically uninteresting – the culprit was unexpected but logical.
