Critics reviews

Throughout both eras, Walsh summons an age of cobblestone streets illuminated by gas lamps with such vividness that one forgets the studio artifice. Cagney is so captivating as the surly, competitive, utterly ingenuous Biff that at times he seems to be working magic… The world conjured by Walsh is so appealing that one has no trouble sharing Biff’s nostalgia for the beer halls, band concerts, and park benches of yore, and above all for the unspeakably alluring Virginia.
