  2. Love this movie a mystery and a comedy, well done.

  3. Ok, different movie ☺️

  4. Simply wonderful. Only question, how was she the 13th guest when she was already at the table ?

  5. As a Gay Man, and an avid viewer of vintage films of the '30s and '40s; love to 'play detective' and hunt for those Hollywood 'Purple or Velvet' underground Clues: hidden Gems that are the visual tip-offs that a particular character is 'Gay' by the standards of that time frame. Note at 38:00 upon the entrance of Thor and his older male companion who is wearing a Pinky ring on his Left hand. It and of itself, the ring's placement, necessarily doesn't mean that EVER Male character who is wearing one is to be perceived as a Homosexual, but it has been readily utilize that this is a Gay 'bromance' here in its portrayal. And there were subtle ones laced into the old ""Tarzan'' flicks, as well. LoL…Hollywood

  6. The Sexist, paternalistic writing for the detective character reminds me that while I prefer classic films, I am glad we have progressed at least some with women’s rights…and scripts have changed to reflect that. There are many films and acting series, such as the great Poirot, that have plot, character development, and writing that is superb, and treat women with respect. Other than that, I like the film! Thank you for uploading!

  7. Lyle Talbot, the detective, is best known as Bruce Randolph, Ozzie's neighbor on Ozzie and Harriet.

  8. Monogram Pictures was among the small studios called "poverty row" and specialized in B action adventure movies. They merged with Allied Artists.

  9. Great movie 🍿 haven't seen 13 times still worth 20stars

  10. Love these old movies. There’s something beautiful and elegant about people from this era.

  11. How the hell can you not like Marjorie? LOL she's hilarious! She is so ahead of her time and she would be fun as hell to be around!

  12. 38:38 For anyone who doesn't get the reference, Number 9 in Yokohama (also known as Jimpuro or the Nectarine) was a world famous Japanese brothel that opened at 9, Takashima-cho in 1872. It moved in 1882 but the name "Number 9" followed it until it was destroyed in the Great Kanto Earthquake in 1923. It was famous enough that Rudyard Kipling mentions it in passing one of his poems where he lists off a bunch of famous whorehouses. Loads of info about it online, it was one of the best known operations in the city's red light district.

  13. I watched this 6 years ago (I found my old comment haha). The dialogue is so funny and witty, snappy and sharp.

  14. Too many commercials… better elsewhere

  15. OMG…love the telephone operator's voice n attitude…only thing missing was her smacking on a wad of gum!!

  16. And the Goofy Guy got the Hot Chic !
    Overall a pretty good Movie !

  17. BLESS YOU and this channel!

  18. Such a great way to watch the old classics. Especially the film noir classics. I love the old movies. Such imagination those directors and producers had. Didn't have to anticipate the scene too much You could just enjoy the move without all the melodrama. The action says volumes

  19. Have not seen a good " don't blink or you will miss something " movie in a while!

  20. And it's funny the brother and his so-called friend, if that isn't a gay couple that is hiding, then I don't know what is!

  21. While I'm glad that the taxi driver didn't just drive away and ignore it oh, what a coward! Like I would even go in there but carefully just to make sure that she was okay but also I would be careful about it. But yeah you wouldn't be able to stop me from going into Save Somebody, unless it was absolutely super obvious that they had like an AK-47 or some s*** and it wasn't Michael Myers or something like that LOL but beyond that, but yeah that's pretty cowardice to not check and make sure that she's okay

  22. Seven in hazmas suits came on the bus checked passengers come with us they dont take no for an answer this is a real pandemic no mask get removed no exceptions
