| Down Below The Leads, Bruce Cabot Stars
Richard Arlen joins the G-men. He meets and loves Virginia Bruce after he rescues her from a kidnapping plot. The gang includes her chauffeur, Bruce Cabot, but Miss Bruce does not believe it. She gets him paroled and he soon goes on a bank-robbing spree with a new gang.

Although Arlen and Bruce head the cast, more time is spent with Cabot and his murderous thugs. It's certainly more cinematic to show a window heaved through a bank window and the robbers racing than the scene where the dentist comes in with a cast of teeth made from a half-eaten apple. Come to think of it, why do so many movies have a rock thrown through the window at bank robberies? Does one of the tellers keep them on hand for that?

The scenes showing the routines of training and investigation by the FBI are the sort of thing that director Sam Wood liked. Although he could turn his hand to anything from Marx Brothers comedies to weeper like MADAME X, his strongest movies were movies about people doing their jobs and glad to have them.
