""Crime School" is clearly from the same mold as "San Quentin" and Cagney's "The Mayor of Hell."
It is a predictable vehicle for the Dead End Kids, in which Bogart played a deputy commissioner of correction who takes over the running of a reformatory housing the Kids when he finds the warden is a sadist...
There is a threat to Bogart's plan when the Kids escape as part of the warden's calculated attempt to prove Bogart's regenerative prison policies are valueless, but the ruse fails as Bogart gets the boys back winning the solemn recognition of merit..."
CRIME SCHOOL NO DVD RELEASE ? !....A CRIME INDEED!

"It's hard to believe this movie has not been released on DVD. Bogart is an Icon and to think that classic movies like this and the 'African Queen' have not been released is just insane and shameful! A crime indeed! I guess there is always hope as they finally released 'Somebody Up There Likes Me'(an early Newman classic)on DVD. Come on and bring the missing Bogart films and many other classics up to speed. ;-b"
