Audience Reviews for Crime School

They did it with The Maltese Falcon/Dangerous Woman & got it right the third time under John Huston. Crime School was Mayor of Hell in 1933 with Cagney and finally in 1939 also with the Kids & Ronald Regan as Hell's Kitchen which the UK Censor considered so brutal he clapped on the then rare 'H'certificate (16+ only). Indeed,check out punishment meted out to one of the Kids by sadistic reform school super,Grant Withers who kills him by locking him in a refrigeration unit. I waited many years before catching an isolated TCM screening (since this is not on commercial video) having formerly seen a wartime reissue alongside Return of Dr X. It is better directed than the other two versions but it is the Kids + Reagan all the way battling Grant Withers in true Capt Bligh form. But grim stuff.
