| Potboiler with Cagney as cocky, dim-witted boxer...
No wonder Cagney got tired of the routine programmers Warner Bros. was putting him in during the early '30s which led to his contract dispute and losing roles that went to Errol Flynn.

JAMES CAGNEY is a fighter with a crush on two women, one being a high society gal and the other a lovely young housewife with a little boy (DICKIE MOORE). VIRGINIA BRUCE is the society gal and she's very lovely in her pre-code costumes including sheer nightgowns.

Cagney plays most of his scenes like an even more dim-witted version of Biff Grimes in THE STRAWBERRY BLONDE, but the film is clearly a minor effort lacking the wit and clever script of his later films, with stock roles for Warner players like GUY KIBBE.

Cagney gives it his all, but it's not enough to make the film any more than a minor blip on the radar screen of his career.
