Description by OLDIES.com:
Murder In The Museum (a.k.a. Five Deadly Vices) is a poverty row Hollywood whodunit that takes aim at the seedier side of life, inspired by the notoriety of Tod Browning's controversial classic Freaks released the year before. With a gritty voyeuristic realism and sleazy side-show atmosphere, Murder In The Museum delivers street-tough dialogue and a downbeat mood reflecting the Depression-era that spawned it. This is one of Melville Shyer's few full directing credits, having enjoyed a long career as one of Hollywood's premiere assistant directors. His work includes such thrillers as Frankenstein Meets The Wolf Man, Son Of Dracula and several Sherlock Holmes films. Look for Mexican-born actor and knife-thrower Steve Clemente, who tossed sharp objects in numerous films (including King Kong and Most Dangerous Game) throughout the 30s and 40s.
Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 209 ratings.
By the time this creaky old mystery (1934) is over, you'll have been exposed to too many suspects, too many alibis, a hero (reporter, of course) who seems to be able to open any door in the city, a sideshow museum, a hole drilled in the floor, a masked man, card tricks, a trick gun, a Mexican with a bad accent, three shimmy dancers, the race for mayor, one of the candidate's daughters (the love interest, of course), and so much more you'll probably have lost interest. i did.
