A motley assortment of passengers board ship to make the channel crossing. Everyone is talking about the most eminent of the passengers: Matheson Lang, a big, bluff, friendly, immensely wealthy bear of a man, going to Paris to make a deal for his firm. He remembers every name and has a kind word for everyone.

I sat down to look at this movie, recognizing only a few names in the cast: Constance Cummings as his secretary; Nigel Bruce and Edmind Gwenn as two of the miscellaneous passengers; comedian Max Miller as a crazy commercial traveler in novelty junk; and Michael Wilding and Bernard Miles, not even on the cast list in their screen debuts. I found it a fine bit of a thriller as Lang's business practices are threatened with exposure and Anthony Bushell, insanely jealous of Miss Cummings' loyalty to her employer, winds up in the icy, fog-shrouded water. Did he jump or was he pushed? Mostly, I was impressed with Mr. Lang's performance. He had become a matinée star a quarter of a century earlier, and his performance is immensely graceful. I think you will find this movie immensely pleasurable.
