Title: Mystery Month on TCM and an Oland film that's unfamiliar to me
Post by: Ed Kasprowicz on June 02, 2021, 09:30:05 am
Hi friends...  TCM is running all sorts of older mystery and detective films in June. You can check the schedule on their website.  On 6/23 at 12:15pm, they've listed a film titled "Before Dawn" from 1933, featuring Warner Oland. I can't remember having seen it before, but, that just might be my little grey cells letting me down, lol. Later on that afternoon, they're airing 7 Keys to Baldpate, the 1947 version, which was written by Earl Derr Biggers.  Earlier in the month, they've scheduled a showing of one of the older versions of 7 Keys. At any rate, set your DVR's to record the ones you're so inclined. ...Ed K

Hi, Ed.  I haven't seen or thought about this film in many years.  Long ago, it aired on a TV station in Syracuse, and I have an old Betamax copy of the film.  Like some of his other earlier movies, Oland plays a sinister character.  The storyline is interesting, and the movie is worth watching.
