Fred (Spencer Tracy) and Jimmy (Franchot Tone) are a couple of guys who serve together in World War I and become friends. After the war, Jimmy marries Rose (Gladys George), a nurse Fred was in love with. Years later Fred runs a circus and Jimmy is a gangster. When Rose finds out about her husband's criminal life, she does something that puts her life and Fred's in danger.
Enjoyable gangster picture from MGM. It drags some in the middle but the beginning and end are good. One of Franchot Tone's better roles. Tracy and George are very good, as you might expect from them. WB had the market cornered on gangster movies in the '30s. This is one of the better ones they didn't produce.
