Howard Hawks' landmark gangster picture is an orgy of glamourous, pre-Hays code violence. It inevitably ditches the moral complexity of earlier crime films like 1927's Underworld due to tightening pressures from censors, but still displays a far more decadent streak than any of its Production Code-friendly successors would dare. Highly recommended viewing.

Paul Muni is not Al Pacino. It's not his fault, but this film is probably one of the only ones that isn't nearly as good as its remake.

Despite its similarities to the 80's version, this one is not as good (thankfully not as long though), and not as detailed. I still kind of like seeing the differences. I can see what could have been and the reason for a remake.
