Black Sheep is a 1935 crime caper from the early days of cinema. This black & white feature tells the story of John Dugan (Edmund Lowe), a professional gambler, crossing the Atlantic Ocean in a luxury liner, as was typical in the days before airlines covered far distances. Dugan travels in the second class compartment, but sneaks his way into the first class areas, where he meets an assortment of passengers, including actress Jeanette Foster (Claire Trevor). An expensive necklace is stolen from one of the wealthy patrons, and a young man, Fred Curtis (Tom Brown), is suspected of the crime. To the surprise of all aboard, the notorious gambler Dugan steps up to defend the stranger. As the story unfolds, an unexpected connection between the two men and a surprising criminal are revealed. Black Sheep mixes the old-fashioned suspense of a mystery thriller with plenty of comedic touches from the supporting cast.
