Format: DVD
Crime was very much on everyone's mind in the 1930s, as witnessed by Warner Brothers' films with Robinson, Raft, and Cagney. The Roaring Twenties had come to an end and the Depression was only just being felt. In addition to the popular gangster films, there was a subgenre that dealt with the other side of the picture - prison films. "The Big House" (1930) was the first film to gain wide critical and popular acclaim. Films like Hell's House" (1932), Hell's Highway" (1932) and "The Mayor from Hell" (1933) followed, as well as the chain gang films, the most famous of which was "I am a Fugitive from a Chain Gang" (1932).

"20,000 Years in Sing Sing" belongs to this tradition. It's based on the non-fiction book of the same name written by Sing Sing's warden. Like "The Big House" it had a star studded cast and great production values. Spencer Tracy and Bette Davis star in a film directed by Michael Curtiz and produced by Darryl Zanuck himself.

Spencer Tracy (1900-1967) stars as a convict. Tracey is ranked 9th among AFI's Greatest Male Stars. He won 2 Oscars ("Captains Courageous" in 1937 and "Boys Town" in 1938) and was nominated 7 more times. Personally I think his best performances were "Inherit the Wind" (1960) and "Judgment at Nuremberg" (1961). His acting method was - "Come to work on time, know your lines and don't bump into the other actors." In 1932 he was headlining in small B films - his breakout film still 4 years in the future. Tracy is earnest and energetic, but there is little here to predict the career he would ultimately have.

Cagney was originally slated to play the part, but was in one of his many contract disputes with Warner, so Tracy took over.

These older gangster movies are all mostly alike but this one was good because of Spencer Tracy & Bette David. Boy, was she young. Spencer makes a great bad/good guy. I'm tough see. The women he loves kills a man to save Spencer but he saids he did it to save her. Sad ending.
