The Frog is a 1937 British crime film directed by Jack Raymond and starring Gordon Harker, Noah Beery, Jack Hawkins and Carol Goodner.[1] The film is about the police chasing a criminal mastermind who goes by the name of The Frog, and the 1936 play version by Ian Hay. It was based on the 1925 novel The Fellowship of the Frog by Edgar Wallace. It was followed by a loose sequel The Return of the Frog, the following year.

Critical reception

Writing for Night and Day in 1937, Graham Greene gave the film a poor review, describing it as "badly directed [and] badly acted". Greene admitted that it did have "an old-world charm", but characterized the "well-mannered dialogue [as] dron[ing] on".[2]

Britmovie called it a "routine thriller";[3] while British Pictures wrote, "(it) suffers through being an adaptation of a theatre adaptation (by Ian Hay) of the original novel. Some of the exposition is clunky and at times confusing; and the direction needed someone like Walter Forde to make the most of it. Hawkins and Harker, in the roles they played on stage, hold it together." [4]
