  • Fast Paced Drama

    I like this movie a lot. It tells a good story with crisp pacing and a minimum of fuss. The acting is very good, from Lloyd Nolan to Edward Arnold to Charlie Grapewin and others, with leading man, Tyrone Power excellent as spoiled rich kid who suddenly has to live on his wits. Good romantic interest in Dorothy Lamour, who never looked better. In beautiful black and white for just the right atmosphere. Happy ending is kind of pat, pretty typical of the time. You are supposed to be routing for the lead characters so not surprising script writers ended it this way

  • Gripping Noirish Crime Drama

    Henry Hathaway 's Johnny Apollo is well scripted, well filimed, and well played. The pacing doesn't let up as Johnny is inexorably drawn into the criminal underworld. Lloyd Nolan is brilliant as the crook, Mickey Dwyer, by turns both charming and violent. Dark haired and glamourous Dorothy Lamour and Tyrone Power are two wonderfully attractive stars who work perfectly together. They are outstanding from their first scene together when they meet on the stairs. The look of bright lights, dark shadows and ominous steam lends the whole a very stylish noirish feel. A first class gangster film. Thanks TCM for airing.

    The first of many "Johnny" movies in the 40s, 50s, and 60s, "Johnny Apollo" reminded me of 1941's "Johnny Eager." A few commonalities include the now comic book character-like name for a title, Johnny being involved in criminal activity, the presence of awesome actor Edward Arnold, a future WW 2 pinup princess whose character falls for Johnny (Lamour and Lana Turner), and an intelligent souse who attempts to do good (Grapewin, from "The Wizard of Oz," and Van Heflin, who won an Oscar for his role). In this simple morality tale, I agree with Mr. Maltin -the acting is good.
