Steve D A bit dated but still fun. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 05/08/23 Full Review Audience Member Entertaining in a cold winter night, lonely by covid-19-curfiew. But the entire movie lives on Ginger Rogers who gives a pretty lovely performance. Not a must-watch bot not a waste of time either. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/14/23 Full Review Audience Member Two reporters continue to investigate a series of murders committed in an apartment building after the police have declared the case closed. Intricate yet uninvolving mystery, for diehard Ginger Rogers fans only. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Audience Member A generic mystery with more comedy than thrills. The characters are so-so and the plot is less than interesting. Many slow scenes, with very little going on. The film drags on for too long. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member This was a silly melodramatic mystery film, which I didn't find a good copy of, unfortunately. I thought it was an interesting cast, and there was some comedy in it, but overall not so good. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Not bad for 1930's thriller. I enjoyed Ginger Rogers & Arthur Hoyt's performances the most. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Read all reviews
