This print is sharper, cleaner and with better contrast than the existing IA copy.
A truly unique mystery that’s well-produced and fun thanks to skillful direction, David Lean’s tight editing and a solid all-British cast. Pre-code. In another year the bedroom scene wouldn’t have gotten past the US censors. Recommended. IMDB rating 6.3.
Directed by Bernard Vorhaus.
Released in 1933 (UK).
