LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Mervyn LeRoy. Warren William, Joan Blondell, Bette Davis, Ann Dvorak, Humphrey Bogart, Lyle Talbot, Glenda Farrell, Dawn O'Day (Anne Shirley), Edward Arnold. Fine, fast-moving (and surprisingly potent) pre-Code melodrama of three girls who renew childhood friendship, only to find suspense and tragedy. Dvorak is simply marvelous. Remade as BROADWAY MUSKETEERS.

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: William A. Wellman. Loretta Young, Ricardo Cortez, Franchot Tone, Andy Devine, Una Merkel, Frank Conroy, Warren Hymer. Visually arresting story, told in flashback, of hard luck Young, orphaned at nine, seduced at sixteen, sent to prison. Loaded with Wellman flourishes, and Loretta is mesmerizingly beautiful.

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Roy Del Ruth. James Cagney, Loretta Young, George E. Stone, Dorothy Burgess, Guy Kibbee, Leila Bennett, Cotton Club Orchestra. Hokey but colorful Depression melodrama of warring N.Y.C. cab drivers, with Cagney fine as a hotheaded hack. Yes, that's George Raft as his dance-contest rival. Nothing can top Jimmy's opening bit in Yiddish!

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: William Dieterle. Paul Muni, Ann Dvorak, Barton MacLane, Raymond Brown, Mayo Methot. Enjoyable film about small-town doctor Muni who unwillingly becomes official doctor for wounded mobsters. Offbeat role for Muni, unusually good one for MacLane as loudmouthed gangster. Remade as KING OF THE UNDERWORLD with Kay Francis in the Muni role!

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Ray Enright. Joan Blondell, Chester Morris, Allen Jenkins, Earle Foxe, Claire Dodd, Mae Busch, Sterling Holloway. When a relief agency turns a deaf ear to Blondell's pleas to help her ailing mother, she vows to make money from that point on, any way she can, and becomes a con artist who even dares to step on the toes of a gangland bigwig. Punchy Warners Depression-era film shifts tone too often, though Blondell and Morris are very good.

Joan Blondell, Chester Morris. Blondell gets top billing in this proto-feminist crime yarn as tough as a taxi dancer's heart. A Depression-downtrodden waif uses her brains instead of... more

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: William Wellman. Walter Huston, Sally Blane, Chic Sale, Frances Starr, Grant Mitchell, Edward Nugent, Ralph Ince, Dickie Moore. Gritty, no-nonsense account of a family who witnesses a gangland battle and is terrorized to prevent them from testifying in court. Huston is the idealistic district attorney; Sale steals the film as the crotchety but resourceful grandfather.

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Robert Wise. Robert Ryan, Audrey Totter, George Tobias, Alan Baxter, James Edwards, Wallace Ford. Gutsy account of washed-up fighter refusing to give up or go crooked; Ryan has never been better. Art Cohn's pungent screenplay was inspired by a narrative poem(!) by Joseph Moncure March. Photographed by Milton Krasner. Played out in real time--as you'll see by the clock shown in opening and closing shots.

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Richard Fleischer. Charles McGraw, Marie Windsor, Jacqueline White, Queenie Leonard. Hard-boiled cop, transporting a gangster's widow against his will to the trial in which she'll testify, must dodge hit men aboard their train who are trying to silence her. One of the best B's ever made--fast paced, well acted, impressively shot in claustrophobic setting. Photographed by George E. Diskant; scripted by Earl Fenton, from a story by Martin Goldsmith and Jack Leonard. Remade in 1990. Also shown in computer-colored version.

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Norman Foster. Orson Welles, Joseph Cotten, Dolores Del Rio, Ruth Warrick, Agnes Moorehead, Everett Sloane, Jack Moss, Hans Conried. Often baffling WW2 spy drama started by Welles, taken out of his hands. Much of tale of smuggling munitions into Turkey still exciting. Cotten and Welles scripted this adaptation of the Eric Ambler novel. Remade in 1975. Also shown in computer-colored version.
