Pathétone Weekly No. 314 (1936)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Interesting Pathe short features Tod Slaughter in his Sweeney Todd role. A reporter shows up at Slaughter's house to interview him but it seems the horror actor would rather kill him rather than answer any questions. This film runs just four minutes and it features some rather campy and charming moments as Slaughter reenacts his most famous role. The film isn't anything overly special but the ending is very nice and features a funny one-liner.
