Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"William Powell returns to the role that he originated in the late 1920′s. This is perhaps the finest of all the Vance films. It was directed by the legendary Michael Curtiz and features an early performance by Mary Astor."
‑ Paul Chambers, Movie Chambers
"Far and away the best of the Philo Vance pictures and perhaps the finest example of this particular kind of mystery ever made."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
