Robinson's performance was A but Doug Fairbanks brought out Ricco's human side and makes it a great all-around movie. TCM needs to show this again soon.
The Great Robinson
Little Caesar is one of my favorite movies of the 1930's. This is due to the powerful and uncompromising performance of Edward G. Robinson. Robinson infuses the character of Rico Bandello with ambition, viciousness, and tainted humanity. This tainted humanity is displayed in Rico's obsession and possessiveness of his friend, Joe Massara played by Douglas Fairbanks Jr. Robinson's Rico goes from cocky and ruthless to pathetic near the end. Robinson is always believable. It is one of the most memorable performances of the 1930's.

Public Enemy & Little Cheeser
One of the best known 30s gangster films.Still think out of all of them,The Roaring 20s is THE BEST!Eddie Robinson is undeniably a great actor,one of the greatest ever,and I admire him for the real person behind the characters.This movie is harder for me to love because of overt violence.But that does not take away from my admiration for Ed G.

This film & "The Public Enemy" are responsible for creating the stereotypical gangsters. Robinson becomes a star thanks to this part as a small-time hoodlum who becomes a ruthless success in the crime world. Oscar-nominated adaptation of the W.R. Burnett novel has aged but the timing of the film has helped it become a classic. A great film, with Robinson's death scene becoming an iconic movie moment. I give it a 4/5.
This is one of the greatest gangster flicks of that era. It's Robinson's Public Enemy and it's just as good! The role of Little Caeser played is great by Robinson as the little tough immigrant from the streets earning a name for himself in the underworld. It's filmed fantastic, full of gritty, fast talkin, quick to grab a gat and blast type of scenes. A must see for all gangster/crime genre fans. Young Robinson doing what he does best!
