Review

A star rating of 3 out of 5.

Suave Ronald Colman's first talkie revealed to movie-goers those dulcet tones and perfect enunciation that would become a model for all future screen matinée idols. As the ex-army adventure hero of a series of popular novels by HC "Sapper" McNeile, Colman is splendidly cast, and provides a Drummond that others found impossible to better, while Claud Allister is the definitive Algy, Drummond's constant companion. This is an exceptionally well-mounted early talkie with much of value, though its creakiness often makes it difficult to view.
