Description by OLDIES.com:
Both factions arrive at Melody Manor, a mysterious haunted house, "as old as the hills and as isolated as an igloo." With weird Swami Yoganda (C. Henry Gordon) lurking and a deformed hunchback butler Harmon (Raymond Hatton) sneaking around, it's not just the restless spirits of Melody Manor that The Crooked Circle must fear.
Zasu Pitts (star of Erich von Stroheim's classics Greed, 1924 and The Wedding March, 1928) had been relegated to comic roles by the advent of talkies. She shines in her role as Nora in The Crooked Circle.
Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 292 ratings.
If it weren't for Zazu Pitts' obnoxious, really obnoxious suqealing and whining through this movie, this story would would be really enjoyable. Pitts was "reduced" to being a comedienne after her silent days, as she aged, but bugging her eyes and trying to look spinstery just didn't come off - she's not funny. However, all the old dark house spookines and ghostly tricks are great.
