Solid drama with EGR memorable in the lead. The tragic Rose Stradner comes across well in one of her few films. The only misstep the film makes is the ridiculous moustache that Jimmy Stewart is forced to wear.

Different take on the gangster genre - with lots of solid acting in spite of uninspired camera-work and editing. Always a joy to see Lionel Stander (wouldn't be a gangster flick without him) and John Carradine. Also watch for Louise Beavers, Horace McMahon, and Joan Blondell.

This is not a bad film by any means, it's only flaw being is it has not survived the aging process like some other films during that time have been able to do.

Fairy standard 1930s gangster film, but fine performances by Edward G. Robinson and an oddly mustached Jimmy Stewart elevate this one to something a cut above the norm. For my money it's the second half of the film, when Robinson is released from prison and tries to reconnect with his son and re-establish his post-prohibition criminal empire that the film really shines.

This film stars Edward G. Robinson as Mob boss Joe Krozak. Joe gets married and finds out his wife is pregnant. But he gets sent to prison for 10 years for tax invasion. His wife soon learns of his mob past and changes her name to give her son a better life. Also she ends up marrying Paul North played by James Stewart. Once Joe gets out of prison he wants to find his son. The story is solid and the acting as well. I loved all the mobster dialogue in this. I originally watched this because James Stewart was in it but in the end I was impressed with Edward G. Robinson performance. Stewart though is excellent as usual. If you like old mobster films then check this out. Well worth a one time watch.

They Should of Named it"Gangster Gets Out of Prison, Finds His Heart".Hardened Gangster(Edward G. Robinson) serves 10 years in Alcatraz for Tax Evasion,never a kind thought or moment in his life, until they kidnap his 10 yr old son, & he finds it within himself to do the right thing.Jimmy Stewart Plays the Good Guy(Reporter, new Hubby) to E.G.Robinson's Evil Gangster

Excellent 1930?s gangster film, Edward G. Robinson is amazing as always, good supporting cast. Great pace and screenplay. Very enjoyable and notable for an early James Stewart performance.

This is a very average movie with Edward G. Robinson, who is great in this sort of role... the kid in the movie is extremely annoying... luckily they somehow landed Jimmy Stewart to salvage some credibility
