A great movie....It needs to be released on DVD !!!
If you liked "Clue" you'll love this...
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!
