Did You Know?

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 »

Short and Energetic…Early Anthony Quinn WB Programmer
17 April 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Extremely Short (50 min.) This WB Programmer is Full of Fancy Chases, Fights, and Gunplay and has Just Enough Energy to Make it Worth a Watch, but is Ultimately Let Down by a Horrendous and Hokey Script.

The Cast, Except an Oily and Handsome Anthony Quinn are Awful and when the Bad Acting is Topped with Ridiculous Plot Contrivances and Dialog the Film is in Danger of Becoming an Absolute Atrocity.

But it Moves Along at a Typical Rapid-Fire Pace that the Studio Could Do With a Minimum of Effort and In the End it is Fun Getting There but is Frequently Laughable and Absurd. Not Much Worth Recommending Except Quinn, the Short Running Time, and the Slick Warner's Action.
