Description

Director Brown, rumored to have gangland connections of his own, depicts the punchy, compelling rise of Danny Raymond (Tracy) from truck driver to mob boss. Utilizing a strikingly modern, non-judgemental style, Brown’s feature debut was a box-office failure in its day, but is now being re-discovered as one of the very best Fox films of the pre-code era.
