    This film is over 80 years old. This seems more like a stage production. This was early for talkies and fun to watch. Basil Rathbome and Roland Young are terrific. I would appreciate if people would not have spoilers in their reviews for those who have not seen the films.

    Disagree that Baz was bad here.Kind of minor vehicle,but good enough.He was not bad in this,Roland Young great,glad he was good guy,wondered about him until the end.

    Hubba Hubba,Basil.He did a decent turn,1st time watching it all.

  • Early Rathbone talkie

    Not a bad entry in the "intellectual sleuth" genre, but doesn't come close to the Sherlock Homes stories. Too much talking, not enough action. Rathbone rather wooden in this - he was much better a few years later as the evil Guy of Gisborne in The Adventures of Robin Hood. The best actor in this was Roland Young!

  • Good movie

    Good little movie, good mystery,and highly enjoyable, especially if you are a Basil Rathbone fan. He is SO Good Looking, and he is a great actor! Thanks TCM, please more like this, WITH Basil Rathbone!

  • Nice try,Philo

    Early talkie for Basil fans.Not the greatest film,but love watching him act.Happy to be able to see this again,especially for Roland Young

  • acting awful

    • 8/2/10

    the acting in this movie is awful. I can't believe that Basil Rathbone was so bad. I think one of the reasons is because it is so old. Mr. Rathbone would say a word then pause between the next one & then the next.
