Critic Reviews for The List of Adrian Messenger
An even more damaging miscue is the utilization of stars who are hidden behind facial disguises in fundamentally inconsequential roles.
Saddled with an incredibly creaky whodunit plot, this thriller should really have been set in Victorian times to accommodate its villain with a passion for disguises, its Holmesian detective in a bowler hat, its murder in a fog-bound Limehouse.
A 'smaller' film from John Huston still serves to give lessons in planning, execution and narration, and 'The List of Adrian Messenger' is no exception. [Full Review in Spanish]
If one takes the film straight, it's hard to believe that the man who made The Maltese Falcon also set this turkey waddling.
A captivating murder mystery, and although the viewer finds out fairly early on who the killer is, the mystery of his motive and the suspense of his capture are sufficient to keep one glued to the screen.
