Critic Reviews for Doorway to Hell
A historical relic flawed by miscasting but almost redeemed by an unjustly misunderstood ending.
Audience Reviews for Doorway to Hell
A bit muddled and creaky but decent crime drama that suffers from miscasting in the lead role. Lew Ayres was a fine actor but never convincing as a villian, Cagney should have played the role and the picture would have had much more impact. The actor playing the police chief stinks up the screen whenever he appears with some of the worst, most wooden acting you'll ever see.
good stuff in this only movie #2 for cagney this pre-code crime drama/gangster flick is well done and fun to watch
