Customer Reviews

This movie was such a lot of fun!

It's unfortunate that Anne and her passenger have no idea what they've been carrying around in the car's back seat!
Bindy Sue Frønkünschtein
Story of good people getting into trouble, but triumphing in the end.

"Has he been murdered?" -- Anne

"Well, that'd be my guess. When people die naturally you seldom find them wrapped up in the back seat of a car." -- Larry

A light and breezy tone similar to "Borderline" makes this Universal "B" crime film very enjoyable. "Bulldog Drummond's" Heather Angel finally gets a lead role and sparkles as a schoolteacher trying to breathe a little life into her life and falling into cime and romance in the process.

Anne Gladdes (Heather Angel) lets her hair down and takes her glasses off to put some zip into her life away from the classroom. When she jumps into a car to avoid a sleazy pick-up on a park bench, however, she is in for more adventure than she'd had in mind. The car she sort of steals is already stolen, and there's a stiff riding in the back seat. Larry Cameron (John KIng) has reported his car stolen, so the cops are on the prowl and the gangsters want it back even worse.

It's fun and exciting for Anne, who's never had much happen in her life until now. She remains oblivious to the real danger involved until the stranded motorist she picks up discovers the body. Larry is shady in a harmless way and the two have both fun and romance while on the run from the cops and gangsters. Dalton Trumbo's screenplay walks the highwire between crime and humor deftly in this terrific little "B".

Constance Collier offers fine support as the plucky Mrs. Breckenbridge, whose legal juice will come in handy near the end. A sweet closing and a cute performance by Heather Angel make this one a delightful find for "B" fans.

I enjoy REALLY OLD movies for their simplicity and joy. This is a great easy movie to watch and enjoy for its period costume, style, and enthusiasm.

This movie was such a lot of fun! I happened onto it while looking for "oldies but goodies" on Amazon Prime. This one surely did not disappoint! Lots of laughs! The story is hectic and madcap...and a bit improbable. But who cares if it could "really" happen? It's just FUN! Heather Angel is delightful and all the other characters are real...well...characters! I'll watch this again any time I need a bit of laugh out loud, real entertainment.

I love the old movies. This is a delightful mix of comedy & drama. Heather Angel never became a super star, but she could hold her own with the Carole Lombard types of that era.

Prim and proper schoolteacher, Anne Gladden (Heather Angel), is a paragon of virtue and discipline. One day, she realizes that she's 25 (!) years old, and fears she'll die a dull "old maid". So, throwing caution to the wind, Anne ditches her spectacles, buys some flashy new clothes and sets out on an adventure. Within seconds, Anne gets herself mixed up w/ gangsters, auto-theft, murder, and a police manhunt! On top of all this, romance blooms between Anne and a handsome man in need of a ride. It's unfortunate that Anne and her passenger have no idea what they've been carrying around in the car's back seat! Now, the chase is on. Can Anne and her new beau find happiness before either the cops or the gangsters catch up w/ them? HALF A SINNER is a fast-moving, zany comedy full of wacky situations, kooky characters, and snappy dialogue. Pure gold...

This little film is confirmation once again that just about any B film from the studio system in Hollywood in 1939 is better than just about any so-called A film made in Hollywood after 1960. If you like being on the edge of your seat with constant story shifts and madcap comedy situations like those found in silent films, you'll love this little gem. In fact, it often feels like the Keystone Kops because Al Christie, the man responsible for many silent films was the director. Don't expect great acting, but if you can let yourself go on this roller coaster ride, you'll probably say "let's do it again" at the end.
