    Utterly splendid caps to enhance the contentions you made in your terrific capsule assessment. Certainly that trifecta of Karlson-Guffey-Conte would raise anyone’s serious interest, but I see exactly what you are saying here about lumbering script and melodrama. Yet nice to hear that the film is redeemed by it’s successful supplanting of an institution in a new era. I have not sad to say seen this particular film, but I know Karlsen’s and Guffey’s collaboration on SCANDAL SHEET, and the former’s fine direction of KANSAS CITY CONFIDENTIAL and 99 RIVER STREET.

    Economical, acute and altogether excellent presentation here.
