Remake with a grim premise for 1940. Merle Oberon is great ... they should have brought back William Powell from the original (1932) ...
Classy, richly appointed remake of One Way Passage is close to a scene for scene remake but the talented cast manage to make it fresh. Brent is less stolid than usual and he and Merle make a handsome couple surrounded by a terrific group of character actors. Eric Blore is amusing as usual in a small role, Pat O'Brien full of quiet integrity as George's minder and Geraldine Fitzgerald is lovely and solid in a small role as a newlywed. But the real standouts are underappreciated Binnie Barnes as a conwoman who has a past with Brent and most of all Frank McHugh as his loyal tippling friend, he manages to make a stock character very human.
ok melo-rom kept afloat by the 2 leads.
