Bruce Cabot jumps off the screen as the hardened criminal. You know how they say Marlon Brando and then James Dean revolutionized acting during the 50s? Well, Bruce Cabot does it here in 1936.
All the acting is first-rate - Lewis Stone, James Gleason (always liked him), Louise Latimer and others. Personally I thought Betty Grable's character was sort of silly in this one! But Bruce Cabot was ahead of his time in naturalness, a real person.
The story shows the true difficulties in raising children. As a parent you cannot be responsible for your child's actions as an adult - we are each our own person, for good or bad. All a mother or father can do is guide your kids along the right path while they are under your roof - but then they are on their own.
