The not so "Great Gambini"
2 June 2005 | by See all my reviews

I was hoping for this to be a good film. I like Marian Marsh as a rule and William (Uncle Charlie) Demarest from "My Three Sons" is normally okay in my book, too. However, for the most part "The Great Gambini" is a dud! Akim Tamiroff is someone who can predict the future. On the eve of Marsh's wedding, Gambini predicts that she won't be wed on the following day. Needless to say, Marsh's intended husband is found later, in the wee hours of the morning, dead. Who killed him? Was it Marsh, one of Marsh's admirers (the bland John Trent), Marsh's father (Reginald Denny) who objected to the marriage, his scatterbrained wife (Genevieve Tobin, who gives Billie Burke's Mrs. Topper a run for her money) or anyone else who may or may not have had a motive? There is even a 60 second timer on screen to let us try and guess who did it. I for one really didn't care! This movie is a weak entry from Paramount's B-Unit and I've seen these stars in much better films made by much lower ranking studios. Sadly, even Miss Marsh couldn't save this film from being just slightly better than mediocre enjoyment. See it if you must, but there are so many better B-Films out there to be enjoyed.
