Trivia

Wallace Beery was originally assigned the lead role, and Otto Preminger was assigned to direct. However, Beery told Fox studio head Darryl F. Zanuck, "I won't do a picture with a director whose name I can't pronounce." Zanuck re-assigned Preminger to direct the comedy Danger - Love at Work (1937), and replaced Beery with Victor McLaglen for this film. See more »

Quotes

[Sturm retells the story of the murder he committed]
Professor Sturm: ...as I said, he was so big, it seems unfair I should have gotten so little money out of him.
Dannie O'Neill: Don't you ever get tired of talking about the guy you croaked?
Professor Sturm: No.
Dannie O'Neill: Don't it ever bother you?
Professor Sturm: No. All that bothers me was a certain carelessness I had shown. I went to his funeral. It wasn't sentiment, you understand, it was curiosity. I was curious to see what they could do about that hole in his head.

"Nancy" is nice!
14 September 2000 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Designed to showcase McLaghlen in another dumb-brute-Irishman role similar to the one he played in "The Informer," this little crime story is as clever and snappy as "The Informer" is pretentious, and McLaghlen's very good in it. Even better is Peter Lorre as a devilish little jailbird who tries to get the better of the big guy.
