Redemption by Blackmail
28 September 2010 | by See all my reviews

This is an unusually plotted and ultimately affecting little movie as small-time heel Dane Clark is blackmailed into taking care of dying Geraldine Brooks -- she doesn't know she is dying. Although hampered somewhat by production code issues -- it would have worked better in the precode days -- a typically excellent script by Edna Anhalt and some fine direction by Felix Jacoves -- his movie career fubbled out after half a dozen turns as a dialogue director and three behind the megaphone -- combine with Dane Clark being well-cast after some misguided attempts to build him up by the studio.

Notice the close ups of Clark and Brooks and some nice performances in the smaller roles. It's a pity that Jacoves' career disappeared. I wonder what happened.
