| Very watchable movie from a time gone by.
This is a rather enjoyable whodunit, the story is a clever one, very much of the time, it's essentially a gangster whodunit, set in Britain, but very much American inspired. It is wonderfully dated, made back in 1936, and still has a lot to offer, it has a definite charm. It's very light hearted, nothing too serious or heavy, Noah Beery is wonderfully charismatic and entertaining, you could argue he's not taking it seriously, but that's just how it was. Low budget, but looks good, the hotel scenes are nice.
