A vigorous performance from Edward G. Robinson.
Illegal derives its strength as a feminist picture rather than from its nominal interest in human-rights issues for illegal immigrants.
This Film made in 1955 is an awesome film, staring Edward G Robinson who is over the top, and getting a minor role is Jayne Mansfield I didn't know while watching the movie that she played the part of Angel, all I knew was who is that beautiful women? I can now see what all the hype was about. This is when films were at there best and didn't sell because of a sex scene or nudity, it other words before Hollywood started turning out trash to make some attend the movie houses. In this one Robinson play the part of a lawyer who never loses a case until he sends an innocent man to the electric chair. Then he tumbles down to the bottom before he has to defend the girl he raised as his daughter. 5 stars
The story is pretty good, and the actors are good actors, but this movie isn't all that exciting, it could have been better.
Tidy little B with Edward G giving his usual stellar performance, everyone else is good but can't match him. Jayne Mansfield has a small but showy part and looks like a million.
Illegal starts off almost embarrassingly with heavy-handed melodrama and the sending of Dr. McCoy to the electric chair, but it picks up some serious steam about a half hour in. Edward G. Robinson plays such an awesome hardass that his performance makes up the hammy first act. You can also spot a very young Jayne Mansfield if you're into that sort of thing. But between Robinson's performance, his character and this movie, you can't really go wrong with this little-known gem.
