David Niven In Raffles
Streamline recently reviewed the 1939 version of Raffles, the story of an upper class cricket player, A.J. Raffles, whose nighttime persona is "The Amateur Cracksman," a brilliant jewel thief. In the title role, David Niven manages to play cricket, hit all the high society parties, steal jewels, elude the police and give away the loot to those who need help. The 1930 version of the same film starred Ronald Coleman in the same role. I have seen both films, and both are enjoyable.
