Howard Hawks United States, 1931

SpacePirate's rating of the film The Criminal Code

Damn good. Huston is great as warden with a conscience. Cummings is lovely as his daughter who falls in love with a con her father railroaded while a DA. She is fast becoming my fav actress of the early 30s. Recommended also for a nice performance by Karloff before being typecast a bit as the go to guy to play a monster. The Guilty Generation, not listed on MUBI, is another great film starring Cummings from same year
