Movie that can be pointed as the first watchable two-hour action. Because back in 1933, when it was created, it was very special creation of the film industry. It offers us convoluted crime drama in the style of Hitchcock. It has everything - love story, an evil genius, fraud for millions and car chase.
Dark and gloomy conception of evil villain has gone full circle from the beginning of the film stripping all the way to the very end which in no way differs from the beginning except exchanged roles of some of the main suspects. The truth also is undergoing its metamorphosis decides to take the hand of love, to come out openly and repent for its present silence. The eternal asking justice vigilantly monitor compliance with the order and manages to instill fear among criminals.
After a long pursuit, in which perhaps the first time we see the clear expression of the German brand Mercedes, where, incidentally, is this film coming from, pieces of the puzzle intervene for the last time, this time - correctly.
The tape also has an interesting history - having been damaged, the movie was forbidden, and finally becoming available to the modern spectator.
