This is also bracingly egalitarian, attacking the hypocrisy of communists and capitalists alike.

Not a gram of fat in Wellman's crazy, urgent, ribald Depression pamphlet

Nick's Flick Picks

A Pre-Code Battle in Seattle... Heroes for Sale is not a perfect film, and not particularly interested in perfection, but really and truly, pretend this isn't a cliché: they don't make 'em like this anymore.

Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

An astonishment: a no-punches-pulled social history of America from World War I to 1933 that covers trench warfare, drug addiction, Communism, automation, labor riots, false imprisonment, xenophobia, bread lines and more.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

A satisfactory but vexing populist social conscience film from the Depression-era.

Parallax View

The schizophrenic tone twists as much as the plot... but Wellman's gritty sensibility makes it simmer.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

A hokey melodrama that is too far from reality to be enjoyed.

Many a mystery is less bewildering than Heroes for Sale, which was not intended as a puzzler at all.
