Not in RT's database, but this 1933 Wallace Beery and George Raft movie tells the story of two competing Bowery saloon owners (Chuck Connors and Steve Brodie).
A good story, complete with boxing, street fights, leading to Fay Wray as the ultimate prize. All this leads to a jump from the Brooklyn Bridge as a bet for Connor's saloon.
There is some talk and saloon names that would be considered racially taboo by today's standards, but very realistic for the 1890's and I'm sure much of the country in 1933 when this film was made.
Jackie Cooper and Wallace Beery
Director/Legend, Raoul Walsh did a fine job on this remake of his 1914 silent film of the same name.
