Fun Size Review: The Last Warning (1929)

Paul Leni didn’t make many Hollywood films before his untimely death but the few he did make are pretty darn amazing. The Last Warning isn’t famous but it deserves to be, a delightful blend of German directing virtuosity and American star power.

I do enjoy a good, stylish murder mystery and this is one of the best ones that Hollywood ever produced. Highly recommended.

Mack Swain did it!

If it were a dessert it would be: Sour Cream Apple Pie with Streusel Topping. Perfection. Just plain perfection.

Availability: Released on DVD.

  1. I played for the movie in Stuttgart. Big event about Laemmle. Not a masterpiece but interesting the familiarity to PHANTOM OF THE OPERA. For the UNIVERSAL people, presenting the film: it has been their first live music+film event!.
