Movie Info

Crime reporter George Melville (Joel McCrea) arrogantly repeated accurate predictions about jewel robberies. He befriends Claire (Jean Arthur), who involves him in a mysterious adventure.

She's starring in a play Gregory is producing, but only as a cover for a tunnel he's having henchmen dig to an art gallery. Gregory is really Belaire, a master

A cracking good comedy-thriller, one of the unheralded gems of the period.

Audience Reviews for Adventure in Manhattan (Manhattan Madness)

Joel McCrea (doing a Joel McCrea type) plays an arrogant, know-it-all, reporter up against an arrogant, know-it-all master thief (Reginald Owen, doing a stuffy English type) in this throwaway comedy/detective hybrid. Jean Arthur's the cupcake between 'em. She's good.
The piece's not bad, but there's no real zing either.
