Jump for this movie
13 February 2002 | by (Tokyo) – See all my reviews

Lovely but relatively unknown movie about a thief redeemed through love. Fairbanks was dashing as usual. Alan Hale was underused as his adversary, but it was fun seeing him play a suave bad guy. Valerie Hobson was not your usual damsel in distress - she shoots first and kisses later. Favorite line "Poor Rickey - he has to tell me he loves me in the British Museum.." A great film to rent on Valentine's Day.
