Like a Bizzaro-world "Here Comes Mr. Jordan" with Rains relishing the opportunity to play the Devil. Muni is amazing as usual as gangster who realizes all he could have had in life if he hadnt chose the path of crime. Who of us hasnt looked back on our pasts and wondered if we made the right choices? A universal film in that regard, and a surprisingly great film to be so little known. Great support from Baxter. 4.5
