The Gentleman from Nowhere Details


The sure-handed starring performance of Warner Baxter and the inventive direction of William Castle help lift The Gentleman From Nowhere out of the ordinary. When Earl Donovan (Baxter) is picked up on a robbery charge, insurance investigator Barton (Luis Van Rooten) can't help but notice that Donovan resembles a criminal who was supposedly killed several years later in a chemical-plant hold-up. Hoping to solve the earlier case, Barton talks Donovan into impersonating the dead criminal. What the investigator doesn't know is that Donovan is the criminal, who's returned to his hometown for a second chance in life -- and hopefully, a reconciliation with his wife Catherine (Fay Baker). It's a surefire premise, and neither Baxter nor Castle let that premise down. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
