City Streets

City Streets (1931)

My Rating

Movie Info

Never one to hide his talent under a bushel basket, director Rouben Mamoulien proudly proclaimed that, while there were ten killings in his 1931 gangster drama City Streets, the audience never sees any of them. This was not the only innovation in this fascinating early talkie, in which straight-arrow movie hero Gary Cooper is cast as a racketeer known only as The Kid. He has chosen a life of crime out of love for Nan (Sylvia Sidney), the daughter of mob henchman Pop Cooley (Guy Kibbee).

Gary Cooper, in a fine, gangly performance as a saintly bootlegger, is worth watching.

Mamoulian's inentive crime-gangster film of the early sound era stars the young, handsome Gary Cooper in atypical role, before he became a movie star.

Quite the wry gangster sonata

A romance story cloaked in the garb of an outdated crime drama.

Audience Reviews for City Streets

interesting for a few reasons: it's coop's only gangster film (as far as i can tell) and sylvia sidney's first lead role and they make a very handsome couple. produced by paramount and not as gritty as the legendary warner's efforts from the 30s but with strong direction by rouben mamoulian from a dashiell hammett story and excellent production values for the early sound era. the film contains the first use of voiceover thoughts, something the director had to fight for as the studio heads were convinced it would just confuse the audience. also said to be 'scarface' al capone's favorite film!
