It's in the Turner Classic Movies film library, and was aired, inadvertently, a couple of times on cable TV on TCM in 1994-1995, but has since been returned to the vaults where it will continue to languish until the legalities are untangled. Meantime, vintage film enthusiasts are missing out on a clever and entertaining mid-1930s mystery thriller. See more »
