I've just seen The Phantom Of 42nd Street for the first time and found it fairly enjoyable, but a little talkie at times.
A critic and police investigate a series of murders that have taken place on the set of a play. Three people have been killed in all and in order to catch the killer, a performance of Julius Caesar is held. Will the killer be caught?
This is an interesting little movie and atmospheric but I found it a little slow moving in parts.
The cast includes Dave O'Brien (The Devil Bat), Kay Aldridge and Alan Mowbray (Terror By Night).
Though not brilliant, The Phantom Of 42nd Street is worth watching. A good time filler for an hour or so.
Rating: 2 and a half stars out of 5.
