| Edgar Ulmer-John Carradine-whoa
Once I found out why John Carradine's character, a Paris portrait artist of young women, strangles them after the paintings are finished, the reason didn't seem to make much sense. But it didn't matter anyway because this picture is full of great scenes and camera angles, and extraordinary acting by everyone, especially Carradine and the beautiful Jean Parker. Parker plays a dressmaker who attends Carradine's operatic outdoor puppet show production one night in one of the film's best scenes. The city is gripped by fear of a Bluebeard, a murderer of women apparently. Nils Asther has a marvelous part as the suave police inspector as does Ludwig Stossel as the murderous artist's agent who knows the truth and blackmails him to paint women because the portraits bring a nice price. And this little movie from poverty row near brilliantly brings out a complexity and subtlety that is in almost every weirdly and creatively shot scene.
