Ticket of Leave Man, The (1937)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

A serial killer known as The Tiger (Tod Slaughter) falls for a beautiful blonde so he frames her boyfriend sending him to prison in hopes that he'll get the girl. When the boyfriends gets out of prison The Tiger must try a new method to get the girl. I believe this is the sixth or seventh Slaughter film I've seen and they all feature the same plot of him trying to win a girl by framing their boyfriends. Slaughter has become a cult item the past several years and if you can tolerate him he's not too bad but non-fans will probably scratch their eyes out. He's as over the top as ever here but this nuttiness keeps the film moving. The supporting cast members are all dry and dull as is the creaky direction. The ending is downright stupid but it fits in with the campy nature.
