At averages good, although some of the parts are a bit bizarre, including Mr. Van, who had been one half of a Broadway comedy pair a decade earlier and who had not aged well. He was a Brooklyn boy who uses a Kentucky Colonel accent and demeanor here.
Although this film was distributed by RKO, it was independently produced. I believe that, given the non-white talent it was intended as a film for urban markets that managed to get some wider exposure. It is certainly competently shot and edited.
