Not much Snap to Strangers of the Evening
15 October 2018 | by glennstenbSee all my reviews

The presence of Eugene Pallette flags a movie as worth a try for me, but not only are the goings-on in this film mechanically presented, the poor quality of the print I saw made the viewing even more tedious. The intended comedic elements should have made this a sure-fire entertainment, but my mind was caught drifting off more than once. Nothing here to remember.
