  1. SpacePirate's rating of the film King of the Underworld

    Really quite an odd film. Bogie plays a halfwit with a Napoleon complex, def a step down from his other gangster films like Petrified Forest, yet gets top billing here due to studio politics of the time. This is a very interesting film, as it feels like a film shot pre-Code. Some scenes immediately call Scarface to mind in their tone and camera angles. Idk if this was intentional by WB as a throwback, but cool anyhow
