Calling Philo Vance Reviews

½ January 29, 2014
"A remake of "The Kennel Murder Case" except with European spies. This was about the time that the Germans and Austrians became the usual bad guys in Hollywood mystery films. James Stephenson is a ho-hum Vance."

Nowhere near the quality of the first film version of the novel, The Kennel Murder Case. James Stephenson is a weak version of Philo Vance but not awful in the role. An entertaining film but the earlier version is much better.

Average entry in the Philo Vance series, James Stevenson is Philo in this one. Good supporting cast, Henry O'Neill, Edward Brophy and Jimmy Conlin stand out. Short, well paced. Good score.
