"Sensation" (1936) has been re-released to DVD in a remastered copy that looks excellent. The photography and staging in this movie are both very pleasurable to the eye. There is a great deal of good ensemble acting, but at the same time the script they have to work with is not compelling. The cast tries to overcome the story's flatness with spirited rapid-fire delivery and several songs, but does not succeed. The movie has some good parts, like when the reporters phone in their concocted stories that greatly embroider what they've actually found out in the murder case they are reporting on. The film is a welcome entry in the re-release program of Network Distributing, promising 450 vintage films in total in the British Films collection. Their rarity is being overcome. The IMDb rating of 5.2 is about right, indicating a below-par story. But the compensations are a print where every detail of face, shadow and clothing is clear and the return of capable actors who once pleased the British motion picture public.
