a-typical jury case.... h. broderick finally gets to star
13 September 2017 | by ksf-2See all my reviews

FINALLY... Helen Broderick gets a starring role in this one from RKO. Broderick stars as Mrs. Jonathan Dean, juror in a murder case. She creates a sensation as the boisterous, loud, self-centered rich old lady. Broderick was so Amazing in all those silly love stories with Gene Raymond in the 1930s. ( My favorite was "The Bride Walks Out"... Check it out if you can find it.) Also on the jury are Victor Moore as the meek Pudgy Beaver, and Billy Gilbert, who sneezed and coughed his way through Hollywood. Charles Lane, who holds the record for the most roles in films, is Mr. Smith. It's all done with some humor, as the jury asks their own questions, and speaks a fair amount of français with the witnesses. Mrs. Dean keeps calling the judge "Henry" and speaking over him, for humor. It's all in fun, and moves right along. Pretty funny, if hard-to-believe. And it's all over with no big fanfare. Directed by Ben Holmes, who directed mostly short films, with the exception of full length films in the mid - 1930s. Slow moving, but entertaining. If you can suspend belief of the trial by jury in this murder case.
