  1. FISCHER's rating of the film City For Conquest

    Un film curieux, sympathique et irritant à la fois qui mérite une rediffusion ! www.cinefiches.com

  2. the_mentaculus's rating of the film City For Conquest

    A poignant male melodrama that, outside of a dated framing device, still resonates with feeling. James Wong Howe cut his teeth showing NYC here before the scum started to rise to the surface with Sweet Smell of Success - so it is a beautiful film both visually and narratively. Although we all have a good idea of the fate that befalls a man going by Samson, the inevitability still packs a wallop.

  3. Adam Suraf's rating of the film City For Conquest

    Well polished Warner Brothers fare, A list all the way, with a moving James Cagney as a boxer with a heart of gold. Top melodrama from the height of the studio system.
