"It is an ingenious and always interesting story. William Powell gives his customary clever, sauve personation of Vance. Sergeant Heath returns again in the form of Eugene Pallette, whose performance is excellent. Another splendid portrayal is that delivered by Etienne Girardot, who appears as the coroner's physician. Arthur Hohl adds to the general interest of this offering by his interpretation of a sinister-looking butler. Mary Astor is charming as Archer Coe's niece."
