Lacking the social graces
10 October 2016 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Warner Baxter stars in this film as both a German industrialist and a French charmer. In Such Men Are Dangerous Baxter essentially reinventing himself after his newlywed wife gives him the air.

As the industrialist Baxter sports a full beard and an uncharming manner, lacking the most basic social graces. A lot like Wallace Beery in Grand Hotel. Catherine Dale Owen marries him for the loot, but just can't go through with it. But later Baxter fakes his own death and then with plastic surgery courtesy of Bela Lugosi reemerges with some elegance and polish. And he sets to woo his widow.

Although a lot of interesting pre-Code double entendres are in the dialog which are always fun in the end plot really doesn't make a whole lot of sense.

Coming off best in the cast is future gossip queen Hedda Hopper who is Owen's sister and who tries her best to save the marriage which she likens to her own. She married a title and is waiting for the loot when Claud Allister dies. And Allister is Claud Allister at his silliest best.

I'd watch this for Hedda Hopper.
