| A real thirties curio
This is a pleasant, if dated murder mystery (actually, the murder is not a mystery, but the film's outcome is). It is sad that this little film hasn't been better preserved, since it is a fine example of lower budget film making from the thirties. Film features tons of depression era atmosphere (fancy dress parties, overdressed socialites) and pleasant performances by two fairly well known character actors (Herbert Mundin and Paul Cavanaugh, who portrays a slick gambler cum gigolo with a heart of gold). One major flaw here: the storyline overall is a bit thin to make for a really engrossing crime drama. Still, it is a pleasant diversion and and time capsule-like glimpse into another era. Six out of ten.
