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 <>

"You make me...I don't know how to say...not afraid for anything."
5 April 2014 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

James Cagney plays masculinely-named ex-con Flicker who rats out his criminal buddies because they were responsible for his going to prison. Now Flicker has to hightail it out of town so he escorts ex-prostitute Rose (Joan Blondell) to a small fishing village where she is supposed to marry Portuguese fisherman Nick (Victor Jory). Staying with Nick and his mother, Flicker quickly grows to like them. But Flicker and Rose have fallen in love, which complicates things. Meanwhile, Flicker's location is discovered and two hit men are sent to rub him out.

Cagney's character is a cocky ladies' man, as they typically were, but he does evolve throughout the movie. Cagney's also sporting a mustache in this one. At first I thought maybe he just drank some chocolate milk and forgot to wipe his mouth but nope, it's a 'stache alright! Victor Jory's Nick is the saintly salt-of-the-earth common man type that you saw so much of in Depression-era movies. It's style (Cagney) vs. substance (Jory) in the battle for Joan Blondell's heart. Nice supporting cast includes Harold Huber, Frank Craven, and John Qualen, among many other recognizable faces. It's a middle-of-the-road picture in the oeuvres of both Cagney and Blondell. The last of seven they made together. It's not a bad movie but the somber tone is a tough sell when you have two firecracker actors as leads.
