Villain Still Pursued Her, The (1940)
** (out of 4)
Strange but dull comedy about a villain who's in love with a married woman. In order to steal her he turns the husband into an alcoholic so that he won't be able to support her or their son. It's strange seeing how alcoholism was looked at back in the day but this film gets zero laughs, although the strangeness keeps it watchable. Not even Buster Keaton can get any laughs in his small role.
Sadly Keaton had to appear in a lot of small budget stuff like this and even more sad is that this is one of the better films that he did.
