As timely today as it was back in 1935.
1 January 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is yet another low-budget film from tiny Monogram Studios. Its actors are small-timers and the sets are relatively simple. However, this does NOT mean it's a bad film--as it's surprisingly good considering its humble roots.

Sidney Blackmer was an excellent but not especially famous actor. Here he plays the leading man, John Hart. However, Hart is NOT your typical leading man but a scheming scum-bag who goes through the stock market crash unscathed and makes a fortune destroying companies. He and his 'friends' use all sorts of dirty tricks to push companies into receivership and although thousands are hurt in the process, all they care about it becoming richer and richer. However, the daughter of one of his victims is determined to destroy the man. So, she gets herself appointed his confidential secretary and slowly collects enough dope on him to sink Hart once and for all. But, out of the blue, destiny steps in and changes everything.

If you see the film, you can't help but think that this sort of person is pretty typical of recent times--with folks making fortunes liquidating companies regardless of the cost to the employees. Timely and pretty exciting to watch even after more than 75 years.
