- Directed by: Howard Hawks
- Cast: Paul Muni, Ann Dvorak, George Raft
The subtitle 'Shame Of The Nation' and a tagged on morality ending is evidence that, on its release, Hawks' fictionalisation of the Al Capone story hit a chord with the campaigners who thought the burst of gangster movies coming out of Hollywood were too violent for their own good. However, this is a fine piece of filmmaking, with a classic plot structure, dark themes and a great look.
