Movie Review by MarkSchitts
June 23rd, 2018

A Haunted Tailcoat!? Oooh! Scary!

Are you ready for a 1942 Hollywood fairytale about (get this!) an expensively made, formal tailcoat that's been cursed (by its disgruntled cutter) to bring despair and misfortune to anyone who wears it? (Duh!)

Well, that's exactly what "Tales of Manhattan" is all about and its story is presented to the viewer in 5, 25-minute, interlaced segments that certainly make its point loud and clear.

If nothing else - This b&w "WTF!?" comedy/drama was certainly an expensive production and it sure didn't skimp when it came to jumping on the high-fashion bandwagon.

IMO - This disappointing picture was just another lame excuse for 20th Century Fox to star lots of big-name actors in one c*ckamamie picture (in hopes of reaping in huge profits, no doubt).

My final analysis - Nothing special here.
