Slick and Silly


the second greatest profile gives a good performance; yeah, Warren William as a phony swami; is there any other kind? Kind of stilted for people who can't groove ancient movies, but fun if one doesn't take it too seriously. And the final line from Allen Jenkins sums up the early 1930's splendidly!

It's a pretty good movie for what it is but there are a few things I didn't like. For one, the way he manipulated Sylvia and used all those poor trusting people who sent him money to tell them what steps to take in their lives was horrible.

I'm not giving them a pass for being stupid and gullible but that's what makes it all the worst. Taking advantage of people who are clueless is despicable. Even after tragedy struck, two suicides and many ruined lives all the guy saw was how much money he could make.
