Format: DVD
The title of this movie makes it sound like a kind of horror film (in the sense that mad means insanity). The only horror in this film is the plot, which is often murky. I said, "Huh," several times in the course of this movie. Surprisingly, the end of the movie actually ties up most of the loose ends. However, by the time I hit the end of the movie I almost did not care except I was relieved that I had not missed something that I thought I did.

The movie is about corruption. The DA gets it by the bad guys because the DA discovered a stock fraud, which was a really big deal in the early 1930's. Report Andy Terrell (Pat O'Brien) and another DA search about for who murdered the DA and who arranged for the murder.

The entire movie is constantly incredible, but the plot bulls ahead without shame. I think I was so amazed at the actions of the characters that I watched in fascination. Murders and suicides in abundance, and somehow the movie makes its way to an all-too-satisfactory conclusion. If you are looking for a great classic movie, you should move on past this one, because this movie is not the one you were seeking. I should point out that as strange as this movie is, Pat O'Brien does a nice job as reporter Terrell and provides one of the few bright spots in this movie. If you consider yourself a big fan of O'Brien, this movie is probably worth. Everyone else can move on to almost anything else.

Good luck!

Format: DVD
A poverty row production of 1933, the film is notable for having three actors slated to become Hollywood notables: Pat O'Brien, Louis Calhern and J. Carrol Naish . Among other well known players were Evelyn Brent and Neil Hamilton. The picture itself is a studied duplicate of the very popular gangsters and good guys films of the era. With not much of a story or script to work with, the performers provide a preview of the styles which, later, much more polished, made them much in demand performers for decades to come. If one must know, it is about a fast talking newsman, friends of the first DA in the film and of the second, who is out to get the guys who dun in one of his buddies( I won't say who). Louis Calhern is the master arranger of deaths for those who have the money to pay him to set them up. Naish is the guy who does the dirty work. There are some nice girls and one who works with the mob and is essentially the "Vampire" of the piece. There are a number of set pieces which make up the film with a denouement which is pretty much inexplicable (and no effort made to explain it).
Why four stars.....well, I like seeing these people at work in the still early days of talkies. In this one, they really show how well they have learned to talk for the screen, unlike many previous films, and the technologists have learned how to reproduce the sound more naturally on the sets. Then the stars are of the first generation of those who seem to be at ease while working. Then, of course, as trite as the action, it does carry one along.
So, a good one for film history buffs or fans of the performers in their later years. For others, it is pretty good viewing for those who can allow for the producer's lack of money and want to see what their grandparents use to watch as a "B" accompaniment to the A film on the typical Depression movie program.
