If a famous star like Matthau wasn't in such a low-grade film, it would probably receive no attention.

Audience Reviews for Gangster Story

This is possibly the worst Movie I have ever seen.Walter Matthau, I Love you, but what were you thinking? I Love Gangster Films, but this one was was weird in how it looked, Black & White & somehow faded ~ish & disconnected from the ill acted dialog.I kept bringing up TCM's Info Screen to tell me what year it was because early 1900's Cinema ,without sound ,looked better than this.Must have been some new style he was trying out, but since he never directed again, it didn't seem to work.I've seen more effective Home Videos & uTube.Weirdly Shot & Acted.What a Waste of TCM & my time, I demand a Time Refund

Skip this film. The plot goes awry after awhile. The acting is all right, though, and keeps my rating a 40 as opposed to a 30.
