Sinners in Paradise ★★ 1938

An assortment of trouble-plagued characters alternately hide and face up to their mysterious pasts when their plane crashes on a deserted island. Interesting “crucible” premise runs out of steam, but plucky, resourceful cast and competent direction keep it going. 64m/B VHS, DVD . Madge Evans, John Boles, Bruce Cabot, Marion Martin, Gene Lockhart, Dwight Frye, Charlotte Wynters, Nana Bryant, Milburn Stone, Donald (Don “Red”) Barry, Morgan Conway; D: James Whale.
