Description by OLDIES.com:
When handsome David Manners starred in The Perfect Clue (1935), he was one year away from retiring from a brief cinema career that started just five years before. In that short span, he appeared in almost 40 films, most notably Dracula (1931), The Mummy (1932), The Black Cat (1934) and The Mystery of Edwin Drood (1935). After playing opposite such luminaries as Katherine Hepburn, Barbara Stanwyck and Claudette Colbert, Manners left Hollywood and spent the next 60 years painting, writing novels and doing occasional theater roles. He died in 1998, three years shy of his 100th birthday.
Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 58 ratings.
Not a bad little sleeper reminiscent of the guy meets spoiled heiress relationhip in "It Happened One Night." Plus, there's a little matter of a murder involved. For its age and the fact that it was turned out by a poverty row studio (Majestic), the print is quite watchable. Snappy dialogue, with misaligned co-stars on the run from law and mobsters alike, keeps your interest right up to the end.
