Audience Reviews for Baby Face Nelson

  • May 04, 2018
    A typical gangster flick, especially typical because the star power gives the thing wings. Mickey Rooney as a psycho killer? You will believe it when you see it, and Carolyn Jones as the strangely obsessed girlfriend also plays true. Directed by Don Siegel, this baby is a surprise from start to finish, particularly as Rooney plays the killer as a barely controlled coward. Good stuff.

    Nothing special but a good early spotlight role for Carolyn Jones.
