Pure, fast-paced fun from start to finish. See this film.
This movie, about a young couple with a baby accidentally getting involved with a band of gangsters being hunted by the FBI, is one of the greatest obscure crime films of the 1930's. The pace is lively, the suspense is exhilarating, and the cast is just about charming and watchable as can be. Cesar Romero is incredibly evil in this film, Bruce Cabot is as sturdy and intense as he was in King Kong, and Edward Brophy is, as always, a ton of fun to watch.
Watching this film is like eating a bag of really good candy. It grabs you right from the start and then zips through the motions of it's thin plot with an efficient grace, hitting all of the right spots and not wasting a second.
It's a most satisfying film. See it and have a blast.
