Critic Reviews for The Emperor's Candlesticks

  • The story is excitingly paced and handsomely produced, and altogether worth seeing.

  • In Rainer's case, The Emperor's Candlesticks seems unusually revealing, doffing the dropcloth from exactly the sort of peculiar, temporarily arresting artifact she was, guaranteed to inspire buyer's remorse.

Audience Reviews for The Emperor's Candlesticks

  • Mar 26, 2009
    If William Powell is in a film his charm automatically gives the film 3 stars. Enjoyable film about two spy's on opposite sides who have both hidden secret messages in some antique candlesticks. Powell and Rainer are great together, he is the one who taught her film acting years before.The movie gets a little goofy at the end and it's not one of Powell's best. All and all it's enjoyable and looks nice.
