Review by Joe Kane (posted on 3-Jun-2008)

Brilliant entertaining comedy/drama. A sleeper that was followed up with "A Gentleman at heart" in 1942, another brilliant comedy/drama. Tall, Dark and Handsome made it to AMC once, but Gentleman At Heart has never made it to TV. Apparantly some legal problem. A shame, as it is a very uplifting movie. Carrol Nash as the top notch forger who insists he can improve on the Masters that he is forging is wonderful.
