By the time of this film Eric Portman was in danger of becoming a caricature.When he runs up the stairs to see his brother I thought he was going to disappear inot a flash of smoke.His performance in the courtroom scene has to be seen to be believed.I think that if the role had been played by someone less stereotyped there is a possibility it might have worked,as it is you can guess what will happen next.
