An effective grade B crime account

Paramount pictures gave us, in the late 30s and early 40s, such little flicks. Quick, short, brutal, rigorously done with actors such as Lloyd Nolan, J Caroll Naish, Akim Tamiroff and Anthony Quinn. And all directed by the likes of Louis King or Robert Florey.

Those movies had nothing to be envious of the Warner ones with Bogie, Eddy Robinson or Jimmy Cagney. Car chases, gunfights, plenty of action all along.

All these short features - no more than seventy minutes at the most - were gangster ones with almost the same topics, but never boring to watch. We can't find this kind of pretty good action films anymore.
