Alibi is awkwardly suspended between the gliding camera of silent cinema and the stagnant medium-shot of early talkies.

The story pales when viewed in modern times and the acting that was thought so wonderful at the time, is simply atrocious by modern standards.

Sharply uneven, due to the fact that it was reshot for sound after production was completed, this early crime-gangster film was nonetheless nominated for Best Picture Oscar and established former child actor Chester Morris, as a lead man.

Hampered by almost universally bad acting and the obvious onus of converting from silent to sound in mid-production.
