Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

The only reason for sticking with this - and it's a long wait - is the double ending retained from JB Priestley's play, which RKO Radio bought after it was even more of a success on Broadway than it had been in London. Starring Virginia Bruce, Conrad Nagel and Melvyn Douglas, this abridged screen version makes heavy weather of an after-dinner discussion between a publisher and friends about the apparent suicide of one of their group and the disappearance of valuable bonds. Skeletons cascade from closets, but director Phil Rosen's handling of the drama is dreary. Then an alternative ending proposes a different outcome. See if you care either way.
