While New York Sleeps [1938] [DVD]

Michael Whalen (actor)
Jean Rogers (actor)

Format: all-region dvd (worldwide)
Runtime: 1h3m
Quality: Very good, colour, 4:3
Genre: Drama / Mystery

Intrepid newspapermen work to solve a series of murders involving the robberies of bonds, the mysterious "suicide" of an insurance investigator, and an infamous practical joker. Will the newspaperman get to first base with his would-be honey if he gets her out of an ingenious frame up? This is a pretty good, smoothly directed 30s mystery series picture from the excellent B-unit at Fox, which is also responsible for Charlie Chan and Mr. Moto.

This isn't quite in the league with those pictures, mainly because the newspaperman detective is, to put it mildly, an irresponsible jerk. Nevertheless, the pace is quick enough that we don't end up spending too much time on this anti-hero's most obnoxious moments, and the gentleman is at least amply repaid for the genuinely cruel stunt he pulls in the middle of the picture. Acting is no better or worse than usual, cinematography is fine, pacing is better than average. If you enjoy mysteries, this is a worthwhile find. ~ imdb
