Many a mystery is less bewildering than Heroes for Sale, which was not intended as a puzzler at all.
June 5, 2014
A hokey melodrama that is too far from reality to be enjoyed.

This is also bracingly egalitarian, attacking the hypocrisy of communists and capitalists alike.

Not a gram of fat in Wellman's crazy, urgent, ribald Depression pamphlet
January 5, 2012
A Pre-Code Battle in Seattle... Heroes for Sale is not a perfect film, and not particularly interested in perfection, but really and truly, pretend this isn't a cliché: they don't make 'em like this anymore.

The schizophrenic tone twists as much as the plot... but Wellman's gritty sensibility makes it simmer.
February 17, 2011
An astonishment: a no-punches-pulled social history of America from World War I to 1933 that covers trench warfare, drug addiction, Communism, automation, labor riots, false imprisonment, xenophobia, bread lines and more.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4
