It's a twisty plotted film noir involving smugglers and a double-cross that is set on the dimly lit docks and in the swinging French Quarters of New Orleans.

Audience Reviews for Johnny Angel

½

He's impossible.

Johnny Angel tracks down his dad's missing ship only to discover everyone onboard has been murdered, including his father the captain, and the gold cargo has been stolen. He swears to spend the rest of his life getting to the bottom of who is responsible. He encounters a strange dame that has suffered her own loss who may know where the gold is. If Johnny can find the gold, he may be able to find those responsible for stealing it and killing his father.

"There's two things I've never had enough of, money and you, Johnny."

Edwin Marin, director of Colt 45, A Christmas Carol (1938), Tall in the Saddle, Abilene Town, Invisible Agent, Race Street, and Married Before Breakfast, delivers Johnny Angel. The storyline for this picture is just okay and fairly straightforward. The acting is solid as are the settings. The cast includes George Raft, Signe Hasso, Claire Trevor, and Mack Gray.

"There's not one living thing on the ship."

Johnny Angel was a movie I came across on Turner Classic Movies (TCM) and decided to DVR. This was an interesting picture with some nice character interactions and dialogue, but this was far from a classic or must see. I'd only watch this if nothing else was on.

"What's your brand of violence, honey?"

Grade: C

Solid little film, short and to the point with a great pace. One of George Raft?s best performances. Claire Trevor, as usual, is great. Hoagy Carmichael does well in a supporting role. Good cinematography and score. Effective lighting. It always held my interest.
