Movie Info

Convinced that car racing will ruin his family, race driver Joe Greer (James Cagney) struggles to turn his younger brother, Eddie (Eric Linden), from the sport. When Eddie proves to be a good driver, Joe reluctantly takes him on the road but shelters him from his mistress, Lee (Ann Dvorak). Her friend Anne (Joan Blondell) falls for Eddie, causing the brothers to quarrel and part. Distressed, Joe drunkenly causes a mishap on the track and falls into despair, until Lee comes to his rescue.

Audience Reviews for The Crowd Roars

  • Oct 23, 2016
    Fans of auto racing should like this one. There is lots of footage of old racing showing various crash scenes, drivers careening around tracks in cars without roofs (going through clouds of dirt!), and occasional fires on the track. Billy Arnold, Fred Frame, and many other real race drivers appear in the film, and there are scenes from Indianapolis, which had been racing the 500 since 1911. There is also a love story, though this is a Cagney-Blondell film in which the two are adversaries. Cagney is a race car driver who doesn't want to marry his girlfriend with benefits (Ann Dvorak), Blondell's friend, taking her for granted. He has a younger brother (Eric Linden) who also wants to race cars, and he hypocritically wants to protect him from booze and "loose women" like Dvorak and Blondell. Things get complicated when his brother falls for Blondell, and tragic when he causes the death of a fellow driver. This is not great cinema or anything, but it does have Cagney/Blondell, and an interesting story line, and it's unique with all of the vintage auto racing.
