• The title means that the crowd is expecting something exceptional will happen:they want blood .When in Rome,do as Romans do.

    Weren't it for the final scenes the screenplay would look like "a star is born" in the race cars .Two brothers ,one of them (Cagney) is a famous champion when his kid brother wants to follow suit.In spite of Big Brother's good piece of advice (see above),he carries on regardless of the warnings.They have women for them,the elder has Ann Dvorak whereas the kid brother falls for her friend (Joan Blondell).The old champion is not prepared to accept it either.

    The car races are well filmed for the time and make up for the paucity of the plot,which is entertaining though.
