Editorial Reviews

Someone shot Angie the Ox around midnight, killing him more than somewhat dead. Word is that rival Lance McGowan is the who in the whodunit, and the gendarmes aim to find a nice chair with straps and high voltage for him. Lance needs a Midnight Alibi. Not by an inside-tip long shot would anyone think wealthy spinster Abigail Ardsley would offer it. Fast on the heels and buffed shoe leather
of the adaptations of Damon Runyon's Lady for a Day and Little Miss Marker came this sharp-eared version of the Broadway Bard's The Old Doll House. Richard Barthelmess plays two roles, slick Lance and earnest Robert Anders, the beau seen in Miss Ardley's recall of
lost, long-ago love. See it before midnight chimes.

4 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Douglas M VINE VOICE on August 13, 2010
Format: DVD
"Midnight Alibi" is a dreadful Damon Runyan yarn about a gangster who is saved from the gallows by an old dame. Cobbled together in 1934 after the Hays Code (censorship) had been implemented, the film is the last under contract of Richard Barthelmess, a very big silent screen star who made the transition to talkies but was never really able to recreate his earlier success. Barthelmess is completely miscast as the Runyonesque character. In fact, he has a dual role and as the thwarted lover in the flashback sequence, he is too old and too stilted to make any impression. In fairness, the appalling dialogue and direction would sink any actor. Ann Dvorak plays his love interest, completely wasting her electric talent. She projects complete boredom with her colourless part! The only redeeming feature of the film is that it is less than an hour so the agony is not prolonged.

The film has been issued as one of the Warner's Archive Collection which means it is expensive, unrestored and has no extras except the original trailer. The print is adequate. Aficionados may like to note that the film was remade more successfully in 1941 as a short feature named "At the Stroke of Twelve" which can be viewed on the DVD of the Bette Davis soap opera "The Great Lie". Also, Barthelmess gives the old dame a dog which looks suspiciously like Aster, which appeared famously in "The Thin Man" and at the bottom of the supporting cast, you will see listed Vincent Sherman, playing a henchman. This is the same man who later directed many Warner's soap operas of the forties.
