Storyline

In Brooklyn, fishing is the hobby of the workers Jonah Goodwin and Olaf Johnson and they use to fish every night in their old boat. Jonah's daughter is the twenty-one year-old telephone operator Stella Goodwin, who is an ambitious young woman that dreams on leaving her neighborhood. She is the sweetheart of the worker George Watkins, a simple man that dreams on marrying her. When the smalltime gangster Harold Goff arrives in Brooklyn, he extorts money from Jonah and Olaf to "protect" their boat from fire and dates Stella. Jonah tries to convince his daughter that Goff is a racketeer that takes money out of poor ordinary people but she does not care to her father since she sees Goff as her chance to have a comfortable life and visit new places. When she discloses to Goff that her father has savings, Goff demands the money to Jonah. Now the old man is convinced that the only chance to get rid off Goff is to fight back. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

exceptional little drama
2 August 2005 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This story features John Garfield at his nastiest. He is a dirty little thug who spends his time beating up poor fishermen in order to extort money from them. Just when you think it can't get any worse, it does as later in the movie Garfield not only wants one sailor's money but his lovely daughter as well! But, because Garfield is tough and ruthless, no one seems willing to go to the police or stand up to him in any other way. However, how this dilemma was solved was very atypical of Warner Brothers movies of this era and helps to raise this picture above most others. I won't divulge the exact ending, but it really tied the movie together well and felt very real as well as satisfying.
