A wounded gangster escapes execution by a rival gang and finds sanctuary in a monastery, as he convalesces. This routine gangster film veers between serious crime drama and comedy, never really finding a true identity. Robinson, who became a star playing Little Caesar, here plays Little Johnny, a no-nonsense tough guy who finds a higher calling. This is Bogart's last role as a sidey villain, as he played a good guy in his next film, "They Drive by Night," before becoming a star with "High Sierra." Sothern is fine as Robinson's moll. Bellamy, who made a career out of playing "the other man," does so here, amusing as an earnest cowboy who tries to woo Sothern.
