For a weeknight viewing this was a very entertaining film. Bogart & Cagney were well cast. It was a good story, interesting dialogue and a great cast. Engaging actions scenes and exciting fisticuffs! Highly recommend viewing. James Cagney... what couldn't he do?! He was such a versatile talent. He does show off his agility and song talents in The Oklahoma Kid, and the singing was endearing. If you love Cagney you will like this movie. Bogey was his usual dyspeptic self. Played the bad guy well, of course. And Ward Bond...who doesn't love Ward Bond?! Not a lot of dialogue from him but he played a man of few words. This is a great entertainment for a rainy day or a weeknight. You can't go wrong with this cast.
