Goofs

When the police are chasing Tony Van Dyne and his gang the scenes where Tony is shooting at the police show the internal car scenes for Tony's car as having rounded rear and side windows. The exterior chase scenes show Tony's car as having square rear and side windows. This is probably because this film used recycled action footage from the film 'Public Enemy's Wife (1936) , of which Bullets for O'Hara is a remake. See more »

Society Thief
8 April 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

When Warner Brothers first did this story as Public Enemy's Wife I said it was mediocre, but the cast somehow put it over. I'm here to tell you that it didn't improve with five years of aging.

In fact, but for the presence of Anthony Quinn as the public enemy this film would truly be in the dustbin of cinematic history. Quinn is quite the charmer and after a whirlwind courtship he marries Joan Perry. He passes himself off as a Brahmin blue blood from Boston if you can believe that. And he'll be going back to work soon.

But work is that of a society thief and he robs Richard Ainley and Maris Wrixson the folks who have been hospitable to him. Only then does Joan realize what she's married.

Quinn has to bail on her when the cops are closing in, but he says don't be thinking about leaving him, she's his forever. I mean really, if he wants another woman as a blind front there are plenty around whom he could charm into it.

And what does Perry do, but marry Roger Pryor the cop who nabbed her and just missed nabbing Quinn. He figures Quinn will come after her which the dope does of course.

It was claptrap before and it's still claptrap.
