Mediocre film
31 March 2013 | by See all my reviews

The first thing you need to know about "The Perfect Clue" is that it's absolutely NOT a detective film, an action film, or a mystery, as the title and the Alpha DVD cover (see the IMDb picture) seem to suggest; it's actually a romance, with a bit of a (simple) crime plot on the side. Which wouldn't necessarily be so bad, except that David Manners is not the most endearing leading man here, and Dorothy Libaire, whom I remember being terrific in the same year's "Murder On A Honeymoon", gives a rather awkward performance at times, as if she still hadn't fully adjusted to "the talkies". At least she has a winning smile. The film is not unwatchable, however it is a strictly mediocre affair. ** out of 4.
