After watching Convicted with Connie Nielsen this early version does not hold a candle from the beginning, I only watched about 15 minutes of it. The acting is performed by actors who never made into later films, much less become known or famous. Their acting is of the goofy form, perhaps trying to provoke laughter or acceptance from the audience; it's hard to believe they achieved either. The photography, in the part I watched, is done on a pleasure cruise traveling from the US to Europe. We know these ships are beautiful and so is the ocean. Yet the photographer chooses parts of the vessel which are ugly, a wall with a staircase and that is all you see, no creative shots with appealing angles, not views of the ocean; the site could've been a cardboard set.

Maybe this film takes off later, which I doubt, they would have to change the acting format and the backdrop choosing to achieve a more positive production. So I am going to let more adventurous watchers find out whether this film deserves sticking with it and I'll watch it after reading their reviews.

CONVICTED is from SUPREME Pictures, a Poverty Row studio that hadn't yet mastered audio recording when they tackled this.

At times actors are too far from mikes and their voices sound badly muffled, while background noise plus the hum of the camera are exaggerated. This latter noise causes an additional problem. With every cutaway from a tight shot to an open set then back again, the hum disappears then returns. It's most distracting.

The plot of "Convicted" is standard whodunit stuff. It all takes place on an ocean liner. A man who will be murdered has separate disagreements with two women and two men. His body is later found in his cabin, a gash over the left eye and a stab wound to the heart. Convenient to the story, a criminologist is aboard ship and its captain, who has also fallen under suspicion, asks this expert to investigate. Typical of such fare, even though one confesses, all our suspects are red herrings. Feh.

Speaking of FISH, one character who's an obvious comic relief ploy is a man named Sturgeon that's in a perpetual staggering drunk condition. He repeatedly slurs out to all he meets the line that is this review's title.

Directed by Christy Cabanne. His Hollywood career dates back to its earliest days, when Cabanne had small roles in D.W. Griffith films.

I do like early talkies, but they need a minimum of technical polish that "Convicted" lacks. It's in fact a real dud.

Parenthetical number preceding title is a 1 to 10 IMDb viewer poll rating.
