Good Movie
Verified purchase
I enjoyed the movie very much, but I enjoy movies made in the '30s and '40s. The copy was good and arrived in a timely manner and in good condition.

It is Van Heflin with Sam Levene in a murder Mystery. What else do you need?
Verified purchase
Well, it is Van Heflin and also Sam Levene, so...Cute mystery and terrific acting. A good, "B," detecive mystery. Gets very talky, VERY, for 10 minutes, in the middle, you can skip through that, in a minute, the rest is great.

dopey movie
Verified purchase
I like Film Noir -- but Film Noir, this ain't. It tries to be a light-hearted murder mystery, but it's just dopey. Only redeeming feature is that we occasionally get to see some nice trains.

A Screwball Murder Mystery
Verified purchase
This is a fast-paced, ever changing plot, that can make sense from any of the variations that come our way, yet, there is only one murderer...Better than average acting and a very young, Van Heflin, takes control from beginning to end and pilots this story to a very satisfying ending...It is visually, a very dark film but is what gives it the grit it needs. Takes place in Grand Central Station, but not in the main room, we all know of and have used, rather, in the bowels of this majestic building, which of course, is some Hollywood set. Very entertaining and engaging...I despise the overly used word, (Riveting), that every critic, cannot do without and has used at least twice in their careers, and that is also because it is not a riveting film. Very good, above average plot, but nothing and no one to afford the iconic, riveting, word ...!!!

Mystery and comedy

Great cast--not as great as Nick and Nora (The Thin Man)--but close and entertaining.
