A gangster revives the careers of a faded Gilbert and Sullivan troupe in an elaborate scheme to get back at the girl who rejected him. The plot is farfetched, to say the least, but in my opinion, Robert Armstrong turns in a better performance in this obscure B musical than in King Kong. And the musical numbers, taken from a variety of G and S operettas, are great and performed authentically. Robert Armstrong .... Jimmie Allen Irene Hervey .... Pearl Paula Stone .... Mabel Edward Brophy .... Pie...

Seymour Hicks plays the title role in the first sound version of the Dickens classic about the miser who's visited by three ghosts on Christmas Eve. This British import is notable for being the only adaptation of this story with an invisible Marley's Ghost and its Expressionistic cinematography. This is the uncut 78 minute version.

Their delusions about Hitler being just another cheap crook are shattered when they discover that knocking off Hitler wouldn't necessarily bring about the end of the war and they must decide what's more important: lining their pocketbooks or letting the military do their job.
