great sfx, especially for the era, good watch
I saw a screening of this at Graumann's Chinese almost 20 years ago as part of a "Cult Movies" film festival... I was amazed at how wonderful special effects were for a 1933 film. Very well executed. Two modern (1930's) "magicians" (Morgan and Jory) battle it out magically to save the girl, save the money and save the day in a spectacular virtue vs greed finale.

The film had all the touches of the era... a beautiful, smart but adventurous damsel daring distress, wonderful character actors playing super-magicians (ala Mandrake or Dr. Strange,)the handsome, strong and virtuous but slightly dumb raccoon coat clad hero and enough witty dialogue, dark plot, intrigue and danger to be a great ride. Hard to find but well the watch if you can.
