"Brains and talent don't mean much to the Devil, Mr. Weston."
10 November 2014 | by utgard14See all my reviews

Another fine Edward G. Robinson movie from the '30s. This one has Eddie playing an actor whose sister (Mary Astor) was married to a jerk (Louis Calhern) that had a strange hold over her. He disappeared years before and was presumed dead. Now the husband is back and Eddie is determined to protect his sister. Starts out like a comedy but it's more of a murder mystery. Robinson's good, as usual. Calhern is a scuzzy heel. Astor's melodramatic but it works for her. Cast also includes Ricardo Cortez, Mae Clarke, David Landau, John Eldredge, and Arthur Byron. Creaks a little due to age and staginess but worth checking out if you're a fan of Robinson.
