Brief review
Movies this good shouldn't be so rare. Warner Baxter plays a slain diplomat who is bought back to life via a scientific experiment. Trouble is, he only has six hours before the effects wears off, and he's dead for good. In that time he searches for his killer. Eerie, slow film has the feel of "Dracula" (1931). Also, a neat peek at world politics well before WW2 and the UN. Best moment: Scene where Baxter spends time with troubled prostitute at "Carnival Of Venus". Director William Dieterle's misty, creepy visuals makes up for sometimes gabby script.
