Sleazy melodrama you don't expect from the 1930's
29 November 2010 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

Getting word that his wife is dying and the daughter he never really knew maybe in trouble a man escapes from Devil's Island. Arriving in Paris too late he finds his wife dead and his daughter turned out by the landlord. She has taken a job in a dive bar as a dance hall girl. Can he get his daughter out of trouble? Sleazy little film is very precode with the implications of sex and violence all around (they throw a man into a furnace alive and screaming). Its very much the sort of thing they wouldn't do after this for another twenty or twenty five years. Its the sort of film thats fun once, but i can't imagine watching it again.
