Shadow of Silk Lennox, The (1935)

* 1/2 (out of 4)

Static gangster picture has Lon Chaney, Jr. leading a gang but his latest crime might just get him pinched even though he's trying to look legit by running a nightclub. This film has an ultra low-budget and it doesn't help matters that the main star was just getting his acting chops together and comes off pretty badly. The gunfights are all rather lame and boring and the musical numbers are even worse. For Chaney fans only.

You can find this film through various public domain labels.
