        Comments about Raffles Double Feature:

        ANY FILM OR TELEVISION SERIES IN THE CAPER GENRE OWES ITS ORIGINS TO A.J. RAFFLES, GENTLEMEAN THIEF SUPREME, CREATED BY E.W. HORNUNG IN SERIES OF SHORT STORIES. THIS WB-ARCHIVE DOUBLE FEATURE SUPERBLY SHOWCASES RONALD COLMAN AND DAVID NIVEN IN THE ROLES, 10 YEARS APART. THE FILMS (1930, 1940, RESP), ARE QUITE SIMILAR, DEPLOYING RAFFLES' TALENTS TO AID A FRIEND-IN-NEED AMIDST THE ELEGANT BACKGROUND OF PRE-WAR/WWII ENGLAND AND EXCLUSIVE WEEKEND PARTIES AMONG THE AFFLUENT CLIQUE. COLEMAN'S PORTRAYAL NEATLY ACCENTED HIS BULLDOG DRUMMOND CHARACTERIZATION OF THE ERA. IN DAVID NIVEN, ONE CAN CLEARLY SEE THE FORESHADOWING OF MORE POLISHED TURNS IN THE LIKES OF THE PINK PANTHER (1964) AND THE BRAIN (1969). THE NIVEN FILM IS FASTER-PACED, THANKS TO THE ASSURED DIRECTION OF SAM WOOD. NIVEN'S CO-STAR IS NONE OTHER THAN OLIVUIA DEHAVILAND, ACCENTED BY DAME MAY WHITTY. THIS INSPIRED DOUBLE FEATURE COLLECTION IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED FOR DEVOTEES OF THE CAPER-EXPLOIT GENRE.
