Jack Buchanan fails to shine
28 August 2006 | by (london) – See all my reviews

It is rather difficult to believe that that Jack Buchanan was the matinée idol of his day but he was.Whatever lustre he may have had in his stage outings does not translate to the screen.Instead he is rather still and awkward and rather wooden.The script in this take off of American gangster films is rather uninspired.The only real standout is Edward Everett Horton who does his usual fey butler actor to perfection.In fact Horton made a few British films in the 1930s when it seemed to be very common to have an American actor in one of the lead roles in the hope that this would enable American distribution to be secured.It is has to be said though that whatever entertainment value this film might have had has now evaporated.
