Storyline

Robert Crane is a slick jewel thief who also doubles as a novelist writing about a slick-jewel-thief known as 'The Gentleman,' who the police have never been able to catch. Although Police Inspector Davd Theron, a friend of the 'novelist' Crane, suspects Crane may be the thief he writes about, he has never been able to prove it. Theron sets a trap for Crane, but jewel-thief Carolyn Martin gets there first. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Creak
8 August 2004 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

Pretty creaky film by 1938 standards. Seems like it would be more at home circa 1930. While you watch this remember that Gone With The Wind would be released just one year later. Sure Double Danger had a low budget but really...this plays like one of the early talkies. The ones before they figured out how to use sound.

The character of "The Gentleman" jewel thief appears to be a royalty free way to use the character of "The Saint". But then since when has the movie industry been worried about such things? "The Falcon" anyone?

Nice to see a pre-Blondie Arthur Lake acting pretty much the same as he would 15+ years later in that series.
