Arsene Lupin


Recommended Posts

Arsene Lupin was the first of four films in which John and Lionel Barrymore would share scenes together. (Both were also part of the cast of Dinner at Eight, though they shared no scenes in that film).


Both brothers come off well in this film, John as the sophisticated thief (who has a gang in support of him) and Lionel as the dogged police inspector determined to capture the master criminal. Definitely a fun item, and you can see how the casting in this film may well have been an inspiration for MGM to cast John in a similar role, as the Baron in Grand Hotel immediately afterward.
