Trivia

Both David Holt (as Florizel as a Child) and Virginia Weidler (as Miss Vandeleur as a Child) are listed in the cast in some contemporary reviews, but they did not appear in the viewed print. In fact, they do appear in the film's trailer. In all likelihood, their scenes were cut just before the official opening date as they are are credited in some of those reviews. See more »

A curious mixture of fun and fright...with romance brewing...
30 January 2006 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

ROBERT MONTGOMERY and ROSALIND RUSSELL head the cast of this comedy/mystery based on "The Suicide Club" by Robert Louis Stevenson. After an intriguing start, it gets lost in a strand of threads that are never unraveled with any finesse. The result is a less than satisfying mystery but told in an entertaining manner.

Victoria London is the setting for the story which, like most Stevenson tales, wanders into the dark side with some proper mood and atmosphere. Frank Morgan is his usual blustery self (what a great Dr. Watson he would have made if Nigel Bruce weren't around), but his mannerisms are played for less comic effect than usual.

The plot unwinds in a snappy one hour and fifteen minutes of running time but explanations are skimpy and you have to be paying close attention to catch certain facts. As the President of the Suicide Club, REGINALD OWEN is burdened by some obvious make-up alterations but does a competent enough job in his unusual role.

Passes the time and is worth a watch as a programmer of mildly entertaining interest. Louis Hayward is impressive in a brief and rather thankless role.
