Despite the storm of protest this Howard Hughes production might evoke from certain quarters it is perhaps the most daring and sensational expose of the modern gangster we have ever witnessed on the screen. It is a picture that will be remembered long after it has been shown because of its stirring preachment against the racketeer. Paul Muni plays the title role to perfection. The inner-workings of gangdom are shown; how gangsters are mowed down with machine guns in cold blood. The picture is not only filled with action but contains bits of human interest and comedy for relief.

SELLING SEATS:
Play it up as an authentic story of gangdom. Advertise it as good entertainment with a superb cast. Exploit it with heralds in the form of a tabloid newspaper. United Artists 92 mins.
