The erotic edge of looming danger, the sexual charge of a sure and confident touch, the thrilling distinction between true refinement and mere formality electrify this 1932 Hollywood drama ...

Today, its potency persists undiminished: The film delights as more than mere escapism.

A poor imitation of Lubitsch's classic romance/comedy Trouble in Paradise.

Audience Reviews for Jewel Robbery

Pre-code film about a debonair Jewel Robber (Powell of course) who robs jewelry stores and calms everyone down by giving them his special ciggerettes (Tickets to you Tim) and getting them high. Powell charms the pants off a Baroness and they fall in love. Not the best of Powell's films, but he so fucking charming and enjoyable to watch on screen it a must see if you are a Powell fan(Keith). The dope smoking is also enjoyable and Powell and Francis have a great repoir.
