8 February 2006 | JoeKarlosi
| Graft (1931) *1/2
A cheap and rather unremarkable film about a zany wannabe reporter (Regis Toomey) who tries to earn his wings by trailing a crooked politician and his murdering henchman (played by Boris Karloff). Though the movie is nothing much, it runs only 58 minutes and Karloff is at least featured steadily throughout. It's interesting to watch him strut his stuff if you're a fan of his (and he does get to say some funny lines).

This is supposedly the pre-FRANKENSTEIN feature where director James Whale noticed Boris in the Universal commissary and convinced him that Karloff had the perfect look to play the Monster. *1/2 out of ****
