Look, Johnny, don't it look elegant?

Lightweight Gangster Comedy Saved by Edward G's presence
Cute little gangster dramedy about a racketeer (Edward G) who finds "real class" in a monastery while on the lam from rival gangsters led by Bogie. Bogie himself (in, thankfully, one of his last supporting roles before stardom) has little presence in the film. Ann Sothern as Edward G's girlfriend steals the movie in whatever scene she's in.
Could've been real dull without the presence of both Robinson and Sothern. As it is, it's alright for a rainy day viewing.
