Editorial Reviews

Political corruption is vividly depicted as a ruthless WWI veteran takes almost complete control of a state with the help of a crooked lawyer. The film is enhanced by John Payne's persuasive performance as "The Boss."

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

This is one of those movies that, at first looks like a typical B movie with no plot and bad acting. I watched with that in mind but instead found a very captivated plot and well orchestrated story with evolving and dynamic characters. I can't say I enjoyed the political corruption type politics but it all worked well in keeping my interest. It's a decent movie and I give five stars because I like clean and entertaining movies as this movie definitely qualifies.

A good depiction of how one mans politics and crime connections worked together to build the system and neighborhoods we live under, and how prosparity was based on your race, color and political association. This was evident in every city across the country powerful Irish, Italian or Jewish gangs worked their influence through fear, violence and money to control people in the community to vote for their candidates. These gangs had the power to control jobs, business's and the police to the point where they would eventually select a Presidents. Powerful acting and story.

I thought the storyline good and actor John Payne was excellent as the boss as was William Bishop as the dodgy lawyer.

John Payne is Matt, one of the Brady Brothers, modern day outlaws who make up the rules as they go along. WW I veteran Matt inherits his older brother's political machine in the 1920s and gradually becomes even more sinister and ruthless.
His flaws are fatal. When he does not get the woman he loves, he drunkenly marries another on the fly, dooming both to a hell on earth. He would cut a deal with the devil if possible but instead settles for corrupt politicians, cops, and mafia types, all of which eventually turn on him.
A morality tale of how "eventually everybody does business with everybody."

Very well known for his musical talents, Payne sought to play this dramatic character role. His demise is traced step-by-step. A good stellar performance, I prefer Payne in A-noirs like 99 RIVER STREET directed by Phil Karlson. He is not especially convincing as a small-town political boss who deserves his comeuppane.
