A brute? No, he's a true gentleman...
7 January 2016 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

George Bancroft plays Joe Forziati--a very successful man who built his fortune putting up skyscrapers. But he's not some polished society man but a guy who literally learned his trade on the job and he's a manly he-man sort of man. This means he's also a bit rough around the edges and certainly not the sort of person to fit in with high society. But now that he's made his fortune, Forziati longs to be accepted and his lawyer decides to help. He gets Joe an invitation to a lovely lady's dinner party. Mimi (Mary Astor) is in the process of getting a divorce and she's taken with Joe despite his gruff exterior. But the problem is that they are just too different to really work as a couple.

In the meantime, a mobster who hates Joe decides to destroy him. He kidnaps both Joe's son and Mimi's in order to get back at Joe. Mimi is naturally distraught and tells Joe if he can save her boy that she's marry him. Joe does the right thing and confronts the crooks in an exciting finale. What's next? See the film.

While this film was very tough to believe, it was enjoyable. Bancroft created a guy who was hard not to like and your sympathy is drawn towards him. Some might not like the ending, but for me it all worked very well and is a nice little film worth your seeing.
