I ran across this movie on TCM. It is a wonderful classic 30's mystery. Typical of the genre and period, it is not very demanding, entertaining with great chemistry between Aline MacMahon and Guy Kibbee.
Not Sommerset Maugham here, just fun and light humor. I had never heard of this series until today. I love light mysteries like the Thin Man Series and the Charlie Chan series. When I am stressed out, I can put one of these "light mysteries" on and just sit back and let the entertainment flow over me. I almost never know "who done it" and the characters, while light weight, are always entertaining.
I am thrilled to "discover" a new series.
Just grab the popcorn and enjoy!
