TV Guide review

77 Park lane (1931)

An English melodrama, replete with the customary lords and earls to give it that distinct English flavor. Neilson-Terry is out on the town one night, grabs a taxi and spirits Stockfeld off to what he thinks is his empty house. When he arrives, he finds out the house is now a gambling center. He lets the crooks get away with it because they are blackmailing Stockfeld's brother over a murder of one of their associates. It was based on the play by Walter Hackett, which enjoyed a decent following on the stage in London. A French version of this film was also directed by de Courville in the same year, starring Jean Murat and a French cast.
