I love movies from the 1930s and 1940s. I adore snappy dialogue and playful banter from any era, any genre.

    I watched this for Jane Greer, who I've only seen in Out of the Past. This was a much different role and she sang! The cast was fine but the story was pretty boring. I didn't like Mitzi Gaynor cast as a native woman.

    I think I was too distracted when I was watching this. I thought it was confusing. I loved seeing Claire Trevor, though.

    Now I understand the whole Clara Bow "It" thing. She really WAS all that.

    This was the last horror film that featured both Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi. The story was disturbing but when you realize this was closer to reality than not...shiver.

    Karloff was the standout as a graverobber. Russell Wade was cute so I will be looking for more of his films! 😉
