Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 13 ratings.
This no budget is a real find. Almost anything with Guy Kibbee in it is worth your time and this little gem is a good one. Taken from a fairly good print this item breezes along at a fast clip. Hanvey is the epitome of the learned hayseed-sharp enough to catch every clue while thinking about chasing down rabbits with his hound. Gets a little muddled toward the resolution as red herrings abound. A good way to spend an hour.
This is a pleasant liitle film, starring Guy Kibbee has a wise-cracking but brilliant detective. One of many really good character actors, Kibbee brings this character alive. A fun film, not to be taken seriously at all.
Guy Kibbee is the only character actor I can imagine making this movie so enjoyable. His snide little insults & his treatment of the two 'blue-bloods' he's helping keep your interest. AND!!! The story twists round & round, but straightens itself out at the surprise ending. Enjoy it!
Really alot of fun to watch. Guy Kibbee is one of my favorite character actors. The movie works, sometimes you don't know why, but it just does.
