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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not bad-but not really a Bogie Movie December 18, 1998
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
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...

1.0 out of 5 stars Boy they murdered this one! January 23, 2000
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!

2.0 out of 5 stars Tough Guy September 8, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Unfortunately I quickly discovered that this movie has one major problem, is soundtrack doesn't match the active. The copy I received the soundtrack is several seconds behind the action, which is very annoying, to the point I wasn't able to finish the movie. Classic Bogart.

2.0 out of 5 stars For Bogart diehards only April 19, 2012
By Marco
First off, I'm reviewing the movie, not the physical DVD product. This is an early film featuring Bogart that would surely be forgotten if he wasn't in it. The other actors are melodramatic and the story, even with its "twist" ending, is a bit too mechanical to enjoy. Bogart is the best thing about it, but people didn't seem to realize it at the time and his role is not that big. As usual at this time he played a gangster type, and I don't want to give anything away, but I swear that Bogart got shot to death more than any other actor in the 1930s!

I'm a huge Bogart fan and I've sought out anything I could find with him. This is worth seeing once if you also love Bogart, but if you're just a casual film viewer, avoid it. There's plenty of better Bogart films.

3.0 out of 5 stars A women has been convicted of first degree murder. She November 28, 2009
Format:VHS Tape
will be executed tonight. This much seems certain. The movie is billed as a Psycho-drama. Is there such a genre'?
The foreman of the jury that convicts the women is a tortured soul. So is his daughter. She seems to have internalized the condemned woman's plight. The foreman also seems to be very chummy with the prosecuting DA. The daughter is in love with a shady character. That where Bogart comes in. At this point it's really no spoiler to discover he has been murdered. That very night he decides to dump her. She doesn't take it well. She confesses the whole thing to her family. Her father the foreman calls the DA. Still that night he comes right over. They begin to spin her confession. To have a women murder her lover the same way on the same night another women is being executed is very dicey for the foreman as well as the DA. Especially if it is the foreman's daughter. That's it in a nutshell. Good late night fare.
