Constance Collier To the Rescue
28 April 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Indomitable Constance Collier made her talkie debut at age 57 in this 1935 film for MGM and gets third billing behind Ricardo Cortez and Virginia Bruce. She hadn't made a film since 1922 when she co-starred with Ivor Novello and Gladys Cooper in THE BOHEMIAN GIRL.

Collier's talkie debut starts out slowly, but she takes over the second half of the film when she (a famous recluse) leaves the house to solve a murder that implicates for nephew (Cortez) and his fiancée (Bruce). She's just plain marvelous.

When a sleazy, abusive producer (Bradley Page) gets shot, the cops immediately zero in on the most obvious (and innocent) suspects and ignore all logic. As usual, there are many suspects involved with the dead guy, and everyone had a reason to kill him.

Co-stars include Betty Furness as Page's fiancée, Isabel Jewell as a nightclub singer, Edward Brophy and Paul Hurst as cops, Ivan Simpson as the beleaguered butler, Regis Toomey as a reporter, Arthur Byron as Furness' father, Samuel S. Hinds as the lawyer, Bert Roach as a detective, and Bernard Siegel as Ehrhardt.

Collier is a delight as the imposing dowager who hasn't left the house in 20 years (after her heart was broken). She spends her time playing the organ and playing cribbage with the butler. But when the law seems to be zeroing in on her nephew she takes to the streets, calling for her car to be made ready. The butler answers "but madam, the chauffeur has been dead for years." Collier would continue to appear regularly in films until 1949. Among her notable films are STAGE DOOR, THE PERILS OF PAULINE, ROPE, KITTY, and A DAMSEL IN DISTRESS.
