Dreadful
7 July 2002 | by (Gainesville, Florida) – See all my reviews

The original title is excellent as it positively explains what the film is about. It was re-issued under the name "Skid Row", which is senseless as it has nothing to do with drunken hobos. The film has basically no plot. It is just a series of sketches detailing what were once considered terrible vices. The film is now antiquated, the acting is abominable, and the direction is worse. It seems to be much older than its 1942 release date. It is difficult for me to write these comments as my father is acting in it (Noel Madison) as a "procurer" for the white slave trade (prostitution). I don't know which studio produced this film, but I have a feeling it may have been backed by the FBI under the "Crime Doesn't Pay" theme. The ending is a closeup of the vice-baron lecturing directly to the audience with the last line being "Crime Doesn't Pay". The movie is so bad, it's now laughable!
