All Critics (3)

The film supplies action, is kept at good speed and holds interest all the way through.

January 4, 2021 | Full Review…

In sheer entertainment value, "Hi Nellie," the new Paul Muni picture, tops the month...

April 30, 2020 | Full Review…

The picture is practically stolen by Ned Sparks -- old sourpuss -- whose wry face and a voice which sounds as if he had just eaten a dish of alum -- make him one of the more fetching comedians.
