Critic Reviews for Violent Saturday

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (5)

The cast is a museum exhibit on the nigh-extinct art of scaled-in American bit acting, with the magnificent Sylvia Sidney as the daughter of a prominent family brought low, her flashing pridefulness intact, and Tommy Noonan as a peeping poltroon.

not that violent but interesting in that it threads together the lives of several key individuals as they are involved directly or indirectly in a bank heist
