Gangster Little John Sarto (Edward G. Robinson) decides to take a break from his gang so he travels across the country for a trip. When he returns he expects to jump right back in but the new guy (Humphrey Bogart) throws him out on his face. Sarto ends up at a monastery where he begins a new outlook on life. This Warner film contains both laughs and gangster drama and the terrific cast makes it a must see for film buffs. Not only do we have Robinson and Bogart playing gangsters but we have Ann Sothern as Robinson's love interest, Ralph Bellamy playing a rival, redneck, Allen Jenkins as comic relief and Donald Crisp as the head of the monastery. D.W. Griffith fans will also find Wilfred Lucas in a small role as one of the brothers. The performances by all makes this a must see with Robinson leading the way in his typical tough guy role. He has no problem playing the big shot and neither does Bogart when he gets the shine. Seeing the two men acting together is always great fun even if we know what's going to happen in the end. I was also very impressed with Crisp and his calm performance. Bellamy clearly steals the film each time he's in a scene as that dumb, lovable redneck character he plays is so dead-on believable that you can't help but smile. The comic moments really aren't as funny as one would hope but that doesn't hurt the film too bad as the film is very fast-paced and full of nice drama. Again, the main reason to see this is for Robinson and Bogart so fans will certainly eat this up.
