William Powell stars as detective Philo Vance in this suspenseful locked-room murder mystery. Along with a lot of head-scratching clues, there's plenty of fun stuff about stuffy art collectors, a beautiful debutante trapped in a house of hate, a glamorous stage star keeping a tryst with a "dead" man, a walking corpse, and a wounded dog that knows the answer to the most inexplicable mystery ever tackled by the most captivating sleuth since Sherlock Holmes! Oscar winning Director Michael Curtiz (Casablanca) spins a tale that is absolutely guess-proof.
Once nearly forgotten, now dearly rediscovered, Dorothy Mackaill's work is in the midst of a well deserved renaissance, and we are pleased to present a pair of films that will only add luster to her legend. Unforgettable film director Michael Curtiz puts Dorothy through her paces in Bright Lights (aka Adventures in Africa), the tale of a hoofer who hulas her way from sleazy dives to the Great White Way, only to end up facing murder charges when her past comes back to haunt her.
