Movie Reviews

Perfectly Charming Manners
J. Michael Click | Fort Worth, Texas United States | 04/23/2008
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Movie: ***1/2 ____ DVD Transfer: ** ____ Extras: N/A

A perfectly agreeable little mystery/romance from Majestic Pictures, one of the minor Hollywood companies that churned out second features during the 1930's. Top-billed David Manners plays a man recently released from prison for a crime he didn't commit who becomes involved with a madcap runaway heiress (Dorothy Libaire); later, he is accused of murder and Libaire tracks down the real culprits, paving the way for a happy ending. The two leads carry the film with their charming performances, ably supported by Richard "Skeets" Gallagher as Libaire's alcohol-loving former suitor. The film runs just over an hour, and director Robert G. Vignola keeps the action humming along at a pleasingly brisk pace.

Alpha Video's transfer is fair to middling; the video is a little soft, and the soundtrack has some startling jumps and pops. However, the print is complete, and considering the lack of care that many of these B movies were subjected to over the years, it's fortunate that the film survived at all. Recommended for B movie buffs as well as fans of the handsome and talented David Manners."
Perfect Clue Perfectly Delightful
Peter Thorpe | Asheville, NC | 12/21/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This 1935 Majestic Pictures production, which was thought lost until recently, is a wonderful find for fans of David Manners, the handsome lead, who stared in 38 films in the 1930s. It is interesting that his character name in The Perfect Clue is David Mannering...I don't know if that was done on purpose, but it's an odd coincidence otherwise. If you like early 1930s films, and if you want to see David Manners in a perfectly romantic role, this is for you."
