You don't see a lot of taxis but you do see a gangster movie
17 July 2002 | by See all my reviews

Good gangster movie set in the world of taxis. The movie is really a character study of one and a half men and one and a half women. Two rival taxi companies are in a war to gain turf and territory. When the turf wars end, people die and revenge or forgiveness is the scorecard. The women represented by Loretta Young are willing to forgive and move on but the men represented by Jimmy Cagney won't and are on course to set their lives back. The love story is unequivocally well-written and the final scene escapes certain cliches that have come before within the movie to pack a powerful punch. It was a big hit for WB in 1932, and is definitely worth a see.
