I first saw this movie in 1941 when I was 12 years old, I thought it was a great movie then. Later on it came out on the late show in 1965 and it was still a great movie especially since it featured some of my favorite actors: George Raft, Pat O^Brien, Broderick Crawford and of course the lovely Anne Gwynne. I wish I could find this movie on video but alas....it is not available.
