"Midnight Club" is a 1933 precode starring Clive Brook, George Raft, Helen Vinson, Alan Mowbray, and Sir Guy Standing.
The story takes place in England. Commissioner Hope (Standing) has been hoping indeed that he can catch a gang of jewel thieves led by Colin Grant (Brook). But they elude him. He sends a couple of detectives into their hangout, the Midnight Club, to watch them. Grant is aware of this, so he arranges for doubles to sit in the club as himself, Iris (Vinson), Bradley (Mowbray), and Rubens (Ferdinand Gottschalk). It's very frustrating for Hope.
Then the gang realizes they have a rival in the form of Nick Mason (Raft), an American who wants to join the group.
Good story that does not seem dated. Brook and Vinson are so elegant, and tough guy Raft is just the guy to cut them down to size. Looking at the film, it's amazing how formally people always dressed in those days. We've lost this.
Good movie, recommended.
