Goofs

When Nick is initially shot after helping Jo Elliot, he is running away from the rival mobsters and presumably is shot in the back of his shoulder. After they escape, he clutches at a non-existent wound on the front of his shoulder. Later, when he is treated by the gangland doctor, it is the top of the shoulder that is dressed and bandaged.

rare gangster film...fun for the sake of it...
30 August 2006 | by (seattle washington USA) – See all my reviews

For all those interested this title is available on DVD..though it doesn't say it in the IMDb home page for the picture. It is available on the Platnium disc release called "Mobster Movies". Also included on the disc is Gangster's Boy (1938) starring Jackie Cooper, Gang Bullets (1938) starring Anne Nagel and Morgan Wallace, also The Racketeer (1930) starring Carol Lombard and RObert Armstrong. I love these cheap four or more movie disc of films of yesteryear. If you can find it and it is only a few bucks, pick it up, especially if you collect the classics of the golden era. Platnium disc is also famous for their other classic film collections. Including Westerns, classic TV, film noir, drama and comedies.
