Critic Reviews for The Casino Murder Case

All Critics (1)

Excellent production values. Silly plot. And, the beautiful Rosalind Russell in one of her early roles.

Audience Reviews for The Casino Murder Case


Lukas isn't a perfect fit as Philo Vance but does a good job nonetheless. The real reason to catch this is to get a glimpse of Rosalind Russell early in her career. At this point she was starting to get mired in, as she referred to them, "Lady Mary" roles all dignity, stiff upper lip and little humor. This part hints at the skillful comedienne she was to become. As for the mystery it's not terribly hard to figure out but it's stylishly shot with a good supporting cast.
