John Beifuss Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN) Essentially a rise-and-fall gangster movie with a gender twist -- 'The Public Enemy' in skirts, at least until the filmmakers lose their nerve and trade toughness for sentiment and cynicism for romance.

Jon C This almost forgotten film -- I can't find it listed in any of the half dozen standard film encyclopedias I have -- is a very good example of the Warner's pre-code social drama, with Joan Blondell in one of her best roles as a poor girl in the Depression who swears she'll do anything necessary to get the only thing in life that matters: dough. With that setting, you can pretty much predict the plot, but the film's attractions don't depend on suspense. See it instead for Blondell's classic portrayal as a wisecracking dame, for the interesting supporting roles by Sterling Holloway and other character actors whom you've seen in a million other old movies, and for the luscious 1930s Art Deco sets and wardrobes. The Warner's DVD quality is just adequate; this film really deserves better treatment. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 08/09/16 Full Review Audience Member Joan Blondell as a mob boss should be the greatest thing ever. Sadly it's not. Still good though.
