Arsene Lupin Double Feature
Crime pays handsomely in this smart and stylish double feature based on the adventures of Arsene Lupin, fiction’s most famous gentleman thief. John and Lionel Barrymore “make a marvelous team in their first film together” in the risque Pre-Code mystery Arsene Lupin (1932), costarring Karen Morley. A wily police detective matches wits with France's greatest criminal as the notorious thief attempts to make good on his threat to steal the Mona Lisa.

Melvyn Douglas “is a delight” in the witty sequel Arsene Lupin Returns (1938), co-starring Virginia Bruce and Warren William. Having faked his own death, Lupin (Douglas) Claims he’s retired and assumes the role of a gentleman farmer. But when a series of robberies suggests that the thief is still alive, an insurance detective (Warren William) attempts to track him down, convinced of Lupin‘s guilt.
