Trans-Atlantic Mystery, The (1932)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

This time out the story starts off in London as some famous jewels have been stolen. The criminal is double crossed and killed making room for his partner to jump on a ship to New York City. Soon he too is murdered and this is when Dr. Crabtree (Donald Meek) and Insp. Carr (John Hamilton) are brought in. This is another winning entry in the series even though the ending is pretty predictable. It's not too hard to figure out who the killer is even though only two red herrings are brought on. The movie features Meek and Hamilton turning in good performance, although their characters aren't brought in until the half-way point of the film. The direction is pretty bland from start to finish and there certainly isn't any technical brilliance to be spotted but the movie goes along at a good pace and fans of crime films will want to check it out.
