This tantalising whodunit was originally completed as a silent picture, but Paramount insisted on converting it to a “talkie”.

Already ensconced in Berlin, Brooks refused to return to the US to complete any voice work, so her role was dubbed (and partly reshot) by Margaret Livingston (the Woman From the City in Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans).

With William Powell, Jean Arthur and Eugene Pallette.
