Universal biopic
30 March 2003 | by (New Jersey) – See all my reviews

A mixed bag. Good production values are wasted on a very shaky script. Some scenes are downright laughable. It does holds interest for the first thirty minutes and then it seems the filmmakers lose their way. Edward Arnold's acting is particularly good and there is a nice music score composed primarily by Franz Waxman. However, the film was a failure for Carl Laemmle and one of the reasons why he lost control of Universal in 1936.
