    One of my absolute favorites. One of the earliest “old” films that I saw right after college thanks to the Attaboy Clarence podcast, which always has a wealth of deep dives from the 30s to 50s.

    It has one leap of logic that I don’t love but the energy of the film that makes it work so well is not really the cat and mouse element with Scotland Yard, but instead just the conversations between Robert Newton and Phil Brown…

    Truly a bizarre commentary track. Turteltaub is joined by a half asleep Justin Bartha who seems like he’s angry to have been involved in any movie ever. Turteltaub starts to tell anecdotes and then Bartha interrupts with comments that attempt to make Turteltaub feel bad for wanting to explain the movie. Glad you’re not in movies anymore Justin, must’ve been so hard!

    Really good commentary with Baker, Rex, and DP Drew Daniels.

    Baker is full of anecdotes about how he found certain cast members — most of them being people he randomly found in town. Rex is just happy to be in a good movie. The dude is so excited just to be here. Also has plenty of technical talk. Baker and Daniels go on and on about the different lenses they used for different scenes. Definitely worth a listen.
