Social Drama
6 November 2008 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Monogram tries its hand at producing a social drama on the order of DEAD END or ONE-THIRD OF A NATION. Jackie Cooper gives a high-energy performance as a leader of a street gang, but the entire production slides over into standard melodrama. Neither does the cheap production value help -- even though it might seem to for a film of this sort. However, the photography by Gilbert Warrenton is a little too glossy for the piece.

Guy Usher as Jackie's father and Margorie Main as his mother give fine performances, and the movie may be the first feature to use the standard "These Foolish Things (Remind Me of You)" in its soundtrack, but despite its aspirations, director William Nigh never seems to manage much of either great significance or entertainment.
