Pretty good Baxter crime drama
20 April 2009 | by 16mmRaySee all my reviews

Taking a break from his CRIME DOCTOR series, Warner Baxter stars in this Columbia "B" as a man hired to impersonate a missing embezzler. There are multiple plot twists in this William Castle drama and an excellent cast of supporting characters. Luis Van Rooten, a fixture on radio during the late 40's and 50's, adds a nice off-the-beaten path quality to his role of an insurance investigator. Charles Lane has an unusually meaty role as the attorney for a chemical corporation. The main problem with the film is that the denouement occurs in the blink of an eye and you're not really sure how the mystery was solved. Also, Warner Baxter seems genuinely tired as an actor rather than as the character he is portraying. But overall it's worth a look.
