Annoying Characters Ruin Film
Night Intruder (1938)

* 1/2 (out of 4)

Floyd Gibbons hosts and narrates this entry in his "Your True Adventures" series. In this entry, four women are playing bridge in the living room when a burglar breaks into the second level. A neighbor witnesses the crime and calls the police but it's going to take a bit for them to arrive so the women are in danger. NIGHT INTRUDER is a pretty bad short for a number of reasons but the biggest problem is that the four women are just so annoying and dumb that you really can't help but root for the burglar until you realize that he's just as dumb. Now, I really don't know how true this adventure is but there's no doubt that everyone involved are doing some pretty dumb things. Through the narration we're told that this burglar is a lifelong expert but if so I wondered why he would rob a house knowing there were people inside it. Then, there are the women, who just act so silly that you can't help but see them as a silly stereotype and this is backed up by the narrator claiming that woman, not men, would be scared of running into a burglar at night. At just 11-minutes the film seems twice as long and while I can't speak for the rest of the films in the series this one here simply doesn't work.
