pretty good
5 May 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this before, either this film or a remade version. I recognized it as soon as I saw the first scene in the park, where a man with a bloody head and amnesia (Walter Abel) meets a woman on the opposite bench (Margot Grahame) who is down on her luck and at that moment, homeless.

The man has $500 on him, which as far as I'm concerned is still a lot of money to carry around -- back in 1936 it was a fortune.

He finds out from the front page of the newspaper that there has been a murder, and he wonders if he was a part of it. The police are looking for a man who matches his description and wears a pinstriped suit.

He gives Marie money to square things with her landlady, and he takes a room there himself, after buying a new suit.

The man spends quite a bit of time trying to find out who he is, believing himself to be the victim's chauffeur, and runs into police at the man's residence. Can he remember and clear himself?

Pretty good B movie with the unusual casting of Walter Abel in the lead. He was more of a character actor, but he handles himself pretty well, as does Margot Grahame.

On hand also are Wallace Ford, Gail Patrick, Eric Blore, and Alan Hale, all of whom are terrific.

Entertaining. No great shakes, but a nice cast and decent story.
