Topaze | Chicago Reader


Often cited as one of the better unseen comedies of the 30s, though to modern tastes it may seem overly static and stagy. John Barrymore stars as an ivory-tower science professor cast adrift among the business sharks in this adaptation of a Marcel Pagnol play. The director is Harry D'Arrast, whose slender film output (he made only eight features in an abbreviated seven-year career) has acquired a retrospective reputation for dry-martini wit and sophistication (1933). With Myrna Loy, Albert Conti, and Luis Alberni; Ben Hecht had an uncredited hand in the screenplay.
