Review: Counsellor-at-Law (1933)

John Barrymore’s performance as a fast-talking, high-powered attorney is the entire movie. Very obviously taken from a stage play (it’s set entirely in a law office) the film concerns the professional and personal crisis that befalls this immigrant success story. Though Barrymore was perfect, the film seemed a long set-up that didn’t pay off completely. [*** out of 5]
