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.
