All right, read it here. Can't you read it to yourself?
I guess I could do that. Maybe if I just mumbled it would be all right.
Mumble and be damned.

bizarre, fast moving, B-movie, about a woman facing the Electric Chair
This film's not quite what you expect from 1933, the trailer boasts that it uses the famous 'narratage' technique from Preston Sturges's The Power and Glory, with Flashbacks and narration; then Flashbacks within Flashbacks. At just sixty five minutes the plot twists are great and the old fashioned dialog is really quite funny.
Made on a tight budget, it manages to look like a bigger movie using library footage and cleaver back projection. Overall well worth watching just for the novelty value.
