  • Inventive Parlor Mystery

    I caught this on TCM recently and liked it very much. Many times movies of this era and type are claustrophobic and stodgy with the dialogue trying to be snappy and sophisticated but failing to arouse or hold the viewers interest. This movie is different because it is relatively short and has a story which must be told quickly. A bond is stolen from the safe of a publishing firm where the 4 partners are either related or well acquainted. The culprit isseemingly revealed by his apparent suicide. The scene shifts to the following year and a radio that is to provide entertainment for the remaining partners and their ladies suddenly blows a tube. They begin talking and sordid details and revelations about their relationships cause questions which lead to tragedy for all involved. Then the movie halts and we are taken backward to the time of the shorting radio tube with different results which leads to a different ending. This curve ball at the end really sold me on the picture and caused me to think about all the little moments in our lives where a wrong step, an uttered word, or an unusual circumstance could reverberate into something life changing. I won't spoil it by being specific but wanted to say that I think it is a small movie that leads to deep contemplation.

    A rocket-paced, extraordinarily produced film adaptation of the excellent, idiosyncratic parlor mystery play from the 30's. Smart, funny, sad, tense, brilliantly acted, sparkling dialog... and damnit, why the hell can't I get a copy? Not even available on VHS. A real tragedy since the wonderfully hysterical ensemble/board-game-inspired "Clue" borrows heavily from this and other titles in its ouvre/genre/whatever. That having been said, the pace of this picture is so fast, and the script so smart, I feel bad calling it a parlor mystery, and I hate thinking of it as a melodrama... But blah. One of my favorite films I can't buy anywhere, but thanks TCM for showing it!

    First time I saw this one and liked it very much. A melodrama that moved along at a fast pace. Viginia Bruce and Melvin Douglas and the whole class was good.

  • FABULOUS Parlor Classic

    It absolutely breaks my heart that this film doesn't get the attention that it deserves... A wonderfully acted parlor mystery with that delicious balance of psycho-thriller and comedy to baffle you all the way through. The real mystery (and misery) is why I can't buy it. Another demi-lost-treasure... if you get the chance, watch it!
