Storyline

Flicker Hayes informs the police after he sets up two men to be caught in a phony robbery attempt, because they were responsible for his going to prison. Dan Curly escapes, but the other kills a policeman and goes to the chair, so Dan wants two hitmen to get Flicker, who plans to leave the country. But he meets down-and-out Rose Lawrence, an ex-prostitute looking to hitch a ride to a small fishing village in the south to marry a Portuguese fisherman, and Flicker decides it would be a nice place to hide. After he seduces Rose, Flicker stakes her to a bus ticket and goes with her. But he's been spotted by Pop Sims, who follows them and reports Flicker's whereabouts to Dan. Meanwhile, Rose falls in love with Flicker, who is unaware that the hitmen are coming to kill him. Written by Arthur Hausner <genart@volcano.net>

Subdued Gangster/Romance That Keeps You Guessing
5 April 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Interesting Low-key Gangster Outing for James Cagney and Joan Blondell who also Dials it back a notch for this Melodramatic Love Triangle. It Works Well in a Romantic kind of way, but the Tension is Never Ramped Up and Cagney is so Smooth and Sedate that He seems to be Hiding Under the Seldom Adorned Mustache and a Cool Demeanor.

The Supporting Cast is Watchable with Victor Jory Affecting as an Immigrant with a Stereotypical Good Natured and Jolly Mom that just Loves Her "Nick". These Types of Mothers can be Distracting when Viewed Today as just too Lovable, Corny, and Sweet.

The Movie is Usually Overlooked as Rather Routine, Especially for the Two Stars who Made Seven Films Together (this was the last). The Movie was on the Cusp of the Code and Except for Joan Blondell's Profession being Obviously a Prostitute there is No Other Pre-Code Activity.

The Ending comes Fast and is Surprising. Overall the Movie is Certainly Worth a Watch for the Fine, if Restrained Acting, and the Story is Intriguing as it Waivers and the Viewer is Never quite sure where it is all Headed.
