A Nice Little Gem of a film.
28 July 2013 | by stimpy25See all my reviews

i also saw this film. it wasn't under "Sin's Pay Day' as the original title but the re-issue tittle of Slums Of New York' honestly the original title is better. in (1938) it was put out again and the copy i have has Mickey Rooney as the star when he's clearly not the star of the film.

it was cause he was a star at the time they put this out again. actually i believe he's credited Mickey McGuire in the original print. that print may be lost. but the re-issue clearly isn't. thank god for that. the previews Reviewer is Correct the law is totally different in (1932) than it is today. Mickey Rooney has a decent Size Role in it. and he's quite good. the print i saw was in terrible shape and it did skip. and the sound was off as well. but i'm not complaining that much cause it exists so that's all i care about.

the acting for everyone is top notch for my guess this B film that was made. Bess Flowers the legendary Extra who has done it is said over 1200 films is also in it. if you can find yourself a copy of it i highly recommend it.
