I'm a big fan of Bogart,but I have to admit this is not one of his shining moments.But fortunately,the audience is treated to some very funny performances by Edward G. Robinson,Ann Sothern,and Allen Jenkins(very often Bogart's side-kick,but not here),in particular Ann Sothern,who should have been a much bigger star than she was.The story basically dies once the brothers at the monastery rescue Robinson,but all in all,this movie has more style than most of the rot-gut being shown at your local multi-plex this week.Definitely worth a look.
