    iCM Forum June 2021 Challenge: Film From Each Year: 1931 (19)

    A racketeer's daughter goes to prison after being implicated in a murder he committed while her boyfriend joins the gang to help her. As I'm watching films chronologically this month this was a surprising step up from the previous film. The technological and creative advances in just a year are huge. I'm not sure if the comedy in this was intentional (it kind of feels like) but it has…

    I was expecting more of a horror film going into this, but found it was really more of a black comedy with some horror elements. We follow Warren Thompson as he goes about a regular day and he’s obviously a very lonely man and possibly a little crazy. He’s very soft-spoken and has a limp, and fits the mold of an introverted character that’s going to go off the rails at any moment. It’s somewhat cliche, but Maynard’s performance prevents…
