(around 55 mins) When Steve Sanky is walking toward Mrs. Anna Maurant's building, he passes a man in a suit walking in the opposite direction and carrying an article of clothing. However, when it cuts to the next shot which is from the reverse angle, you see Sanky passing the same man again. See more »

It shows its age, and that's part of its charm. It's filled with old-fashioned ethnic stereotypes, but that makes it even more fascinating. This movie is a time machine; hop into it and you'll see a gritty and realistic picture of working-class New York City life in the early 1930s. It's pre-Code, so the language is blunt and the sexuality more open. The plot isn't Shakespeare, but it grabs onto you anyway, and the characters are so attractive and watchable that you become part of their neighborhood. A piece of cinematic and social history that is well worth your 80 minutes of time.
