Storyline

Mr. Morris, the owner of a large metropolitan department store, gives jobs to paroled ex-convicts in an effort to help them reform and go straight. Among his 'employed-prison-graduates' are Helen Roberts and Joe Dennis, working as sales clerks. Joe is in love with Helen and asks her to marry him, but she is forbidden to marry as she is still on parole, but she says yes and they are married. In spite of their poverty-level life, their marriage is a happy one until Joe discovers she has lied about her past, in order to marry him. Disillusioned, he leaves, goes back to his old gang and plans to rob the department store. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Fritz Lang's Odd One
21 September 2006 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

This is different, I'll say that. It's billed as a film noir but it's really a melodrama.

It's a romance story involving the characters played by George Raft and Sylvia Sidney. This was my first look at Sidney and she wasn't all that appealing to me. Since then I have seen her many times in films spanning a number of decades, on film or in guest appearances on television shows. Although hardly a beauty, she always was interesting. So was George Raft, who played a very low-key role in this movie. He was best playing a tougher gangster.

A man who received no billing in this movie but was really the third star was Warren Hymer, who played a dumb crook. There were also two musical numbers in this movie, one of them delivered in strange prose by the criminals.

As I said, this was kind of a strange piece of entertainment. Director Fritz Lang wanted to make a statement about crime not paying but he wanted to tell it in a different format. Well, I can appreciate that but I think he could have done that in a more entertaining way because the middle of this film dragged way too much and might have lost a lot of viewers. The ending was inventive but a little corny, too.
