Reviewed on 1/17/2011...
This movie is an adaptation of a stage play and it looks it. For what it is, it is well done. The acting is of a style of the time and the direction is straightforward. Bogie has very little screen time, but his performance is solid. Definitely worth seeing.

Unfortunately this Mandacy release is quite sub-standard. The picture quality is not great and the sound has a very noticeable problem. You have probably seen a film where the movements of the actors' mouths are not quite in sync with what you are hearing. Sometimes you can't tell if the sound is ahead of or behind the images. But in this case there is no question. The sound is out of sync by three and half seconds. Tough to watch, but worth the effort.

Not bad-but not really a Bogie Movie
Paul J. Mular | 12/18/1998
(2 out of 5 stars)

"This movie is hyped as "Starring Humphrey Bogart," however, when you sit down to watch it, Bogie's camera time last all but 3 1/2 minutes. The premise is interesting though--as it provides a moral dilemma that's still got an edge. Maybe a good candidate for a remake..."
Great presentation of a fair 1930's movie featuring Bogie

"If you are looking at the Image Entertainment DVD, ignor any other reviews that refer to Madacy or other inferior cheapie DVD companies. This DVD has been RESTORED from a very nice print!VERY MELODRAMATIC & over acted like a silent movie! It is the movie itself that I rate 3 stars. This is for devoted Bogart fans who want to experience his early work. He is only a supporting player who appears in less than half the movie, yet his character steals the show. His acting style stands out from the others and you can for-see the potential for his future.Don't expect Casablanca or even They Drive By Night, expect to see Bogie learning his trade. And try not to laugh at the melodramatic stars of the show."
Boy they murdered this one!

"My primary complaint about this DVD is that the sound track is 8 to 10 seconds behind the video track. I found it very difficult to follow and gave up after 5 minutes. I hope I can return it!"
