  1. Thank you so much! William Powell is my favorite. I just watched Star of Midnight (again) and here I am, back for another one. 😁

  2. Wow! I have never seen this! I did track down the correct title – but never heard of it. And William Powell without a mustache.

  3. wow! was very surprised to see powell have his iconic mustache shaved in his character's role. gives him quite a different appearance: rather lost the suave, debonair image. wonder how he felt about doing that?

  4. I thought I've seen every William Powell movie but I never seen this one until now.
    Thanks so much for providing it.
    But honestly I like it much better when he's a detective [ the Thin Man !!! ]

  5. I have recently found these movies and this is my third one I have watched. I don't normally watch movies from the 30's (usually the 40's) but I did enjoy this one. I am planning on making this channel part of my morning routine. This seems like a better way to start the day than watching our current news. Thank you and I look forward to more crime dramas.

  6. I loved watching this William Powell film again you can't help but want him to come out on top. The one regret I have is I know how it ends.

  7. William Powell was the cream of the crop. Next to Gene Kelly one of Pittsburgh's greatest thespian contributions to the film industry. Thanks so much for the upload.

  8. powell and moorehead twice in one night! that fall from the window is ahead of it's time. worth the view just for the vintage exterior of sing sing, the main building was unchanged 45 years later. thanks for this rarely shown classic!

  9. I like the character of the elevator operator. A small part but significant. He seems to be more than just an elevator clerk.
