3 things about Mervyn LeRoy’s FIVE STAR FINAL

Five Star Final [1931]

1. Drunken Karloff.
2. “I rode uptown in a taxi with him and I don’t have any skin left on my knees.”
“What were you two doing? Kneeling in prayer?”
3. He hurls the phone through Hinchecliffe’s office widow.

What it lacks in subtlety it more than makes up for in verve.
