    Not a bad performance in the lot.The right guy supposedly wins in the end.Raft is a square guy,Eddie Robinson his best bud.Marlene a good girl with an unfortunate record.Didn't care for Eddie's ending as brawling with Raft under misconception,but Raft and Marlene meant for each other.Great film,greater performances.Kudos to Hale and McHugh as comic foils.Maybe Raft shoulda picked someone his own weight division to argue with over a girl on/offscreen.

    If you saw the 1991 film Bugsy, starring Warren Beatty and Annette Benning, you should recall that one scene in Manpower was parodied in that film. In the scene where George Raft battles with the goons in the clip joint/nightclub, the woman who Raft was supposed to have handed a piece of a chair after he had bashed one of the goons with it, was supposed to have been played by Virginia Hill, the "moll" of real-life gangster Bugsy Siegal.

    "Manpower" (Warner Bros. 1941) is a tough, solid story about two power company linemen falling for a sexy-sultry nightclub diva, starring two of WB's top male stars, Edward G. Robinson and George Raft, and Marlene Dietrich in only one of two films she made at WB. You can feel the electricity between these three great stars, and it's as intense as the power going through the high-tension wires they work on. One of EGR's best.

    • 3/5/10

    Edward G. Robinson always puts in a 100% effort to every performance. He always lifts up a film. This is a routine story, made considerably better by the terrific cast. Eve Arden scores in an early supporting role, but Marlene Dietrich seems a little out of place. Great pace, good photography. A solid crime drama.
