  • A milestone film.

    The Director used several new techiques, including hearing the actor think, without talking. Gary Cooper at 29, making his first big break movie as a gangster of all things. Sylvia Sidney as a mob mol. Guy Kibbe as a killer.Although some of the scenes are corney to use a phrase of that era, if the primitive techicalities are factored, this is an excellent film, and should be placed in the film noire category. Its one of the earliest talkies that takes place primarily at night, with tough guys who don't allow their molls to defend them from other bad guys.For the youngsters reading this, prohibition, the 18th ammendment, began in 1920 and ended in 1933, about the time this film was made. The hundreds of films made about this era rival the Western genre in number of films about a specific era. The difference between films made in this era, and those made today, is the bad guys were clearly defined, and usually ended up dead or in jail. Which is the plot in this flic. Cooper plays a later day Lone Ranger. We never see him kill anyone, although he certainly had a reason to kill two thugs waiting outside his house with Tommy Guns. And in the end three thugs sent out to kill him and his girl, end up walking home as Cooper as his gal ride off into the right side of the law.
