MORE GAB THAN GUNS
Ridiculous Title aside, this is an OK Gangster Film with More Gab than Guns.
There is an Edge to the Execution and Display.
The Script is Interesting in a Behind the Scenes kind of way.
It lets Us in on the Money Machines and Political Corruption that is a Warner's Trademark of Message Movies.
The Attraction here is the Two Stars.
There is a Modern Fascination with the Actors and Their Tough Guy Personas and They Don't Disappoint.
This Film is more Sanitized and Sterile then the Best of the Gangster Films.
The Newly Defined Hays Code forced Tricky Gymnastic Presentations of the Seedy and the Sultry.
The Studio Professionals were up to the task and a "New" Type of Underworld Uncovering Emerged.
For Better or Worse.
