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.
