  1. FISCHER's rating of the film Illegal

    Honnête film noir américain d'où se détache la prestation de Robinson...

  2. Aaken's rating of the film Illegal

    Fall and redemption. Edward G. Robinson is his usual great as an attorney who has sent the wrong man to the electric chair. He carries the whole film on his shoulders. Not quite a film noir, more of a crime drama, it is notable for Robinson's personal collection of the great masters' paintings that he lent to the production, and for a young Jayne Mansfield, who has a few scenes as the gangster's piano playing moll.
