A wholesome farmboy moves to the city after the death of his mother. Dazzled by the smooth talk of a wily bootlegger (Pat O’Brien) and his beautiful girlfriend (Bette Davis), the naive lad runs afoul of the law and ends up in a brutal reform school.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
This is actually an awful film, with bad acting and bad film making style, one of those early talkies that just didn't get it right, But it was entertaining and it has Bette Davis in it (one of her earliest pictures). I don't know if I could give 3 stars to a Bette Davis picture. Ok, 3 and a half stars.
