(1934) Leslie Banks. Anne Grey, Carol Goodner, Frank Cellier, Frances L. Sullivan. Don’t let the non-descript title fool you, this is one tough, mean-spirited thriller about insurance fraud and murder. Banks is marvelous as a slick talking fire insurance investigator who falls in with a gang of arsonists when things get financially tough. There are no holds barred in this pre-Code film—it pulls no punches! The level of violence and spirited action are quite amazing for 1934. The interrogation scene with Francis L. Sullivan is incredibly intense and marvelously filmed! There are many other great moments. Wow! What a great thriller this turned out to be. Gets an A+ for sure! From 35mm.
