Surpsingly Good Pre-Noir
5 February 2004 | by (NY, NY) – See all my reviews

This is one of those 1930s that feel almost like film noir. The prison scenes are very powerful, and the men-with-men aspect of prison life is highly accented. Ann Dvorak is good, as she always was. Always. The scene in which the prison chaplain says he will pay for the body of a Chinese man about to be executed to be buried with his ancestors is particularly moving.
