Storyline

Based on the story "Mob Rule" by Norman Krasna. Joe Wilson and Katherine Grant are in love, but he doesn't have enough money for them to get married. So Katherine moves across the country to make money. But things go disastrously wrong for Joe when he stops in a small town and is mistaken for a wanted murderer. Through the course of the movie, Fritz Lang shows us how a decent and once civilized man can become a ruthless and bitter man. Written by Andre'a M. Thompson <athompso@ziggy.st.hmc.edu>

Mob Melodrama
7 May 2006 | by See all my reviews

Tracy escapes from the mob's attempt to burn down the prison he's being kept in and seeks revenge. An interesting study of mob mentality from Lang, making his first American film. It starts off well but takes a turn for the worse after the prison escape. It becomes melodramatic and preachy. Tracy is understandably bitter but the sudden change in his behavior is not believable. Tracy portrays this change in his character with really bad overacting. Brennan is fun to watch as a sheriff's deputy. Revisiting many of the themes from this film in his next, "You Only Live Once," Lang cut down on the melodrama and the overacting, producing a better film.
