Don't Mess with Old Guys
11 October 2011 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Long-time, loyal employee Thurgood (Rains) is let go as part of a modernizing move at Maynard's fashionable jewelry store. He's crushed but has no alternative. Wanting to go out on a triumphal note, he sells a valuable necklace to a high-class doctor's wife. Then the trouble starts.

Nothing special, just good solid Hitchcock. Rains, of course, was one of Hollywood's most commanding actors. Here, however, he's uncharacteristically meek and mild as the dutiful head salesman, showing his versatility. Von Furstenberg is all perky coyness, appropriate for a pampered high-fashion wife. The upshot itself is not too surprising but carries an unexpected little fillip. An entertaining, if unexceptional, 30- minutes.
