Dimitri Koslov: Well?

Rather dull and disjointed
14 May 2017 | by kmbamaSee all my reviews

A rather disjointed, dull film that Charles Boyer fans may like simply because it's another film with Charles Boyer. Nothing really remarkable in it other than an odd appearance of Warner Oland playing not Charlie Chan but a Chinese diplomat and Keye Luke playing his son (again). Scenes skip from the main characters poverty, wealth, poverty with no visible explanation, other than a succinct, "Well, I've lost everything."

I suppose the point of the film was a lame attempt at criticizing prejudice in a film complete with Libby Taylor as "Corona" the stereotypical black maid complete with campy attitude and down-home witticisms but who, unlike virtually anyone else in the picture, seems to speak Chinese. Warner Oland's appearance makes the ostensible point of the film even more comical.
