Murder's Funnier the Second Time Around
22 July 2010 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

RKO redid that favorite of the amateur dramatic society, LADIES OF THE JURY, slanting it much more towards comedy than the earlier version with two slick comedians in the leads -- Helen Broderick in prime dizzy mode and Victor Moore as.... well, in befuddled mood.

In the earlier version, Edna May Oliver had dominated the entire proceedings brilliantly, but here, although the performances are not as compelling, it isn't a one-woman show, so you may prefer this version -- which also has a lot more RKO gloss, thanks to chief cameraman Nick Musuraca and a sound track that is clean. My taste is towards the earlier version, but this one has a lot going for it.

Among the pluses is a lot of talent lurking around, including Billy Gilbert as members of the jury and sourpuss Robert McWade as the judge. If you wish to know what you like, you might sample both versions.
