I really liked this film. The film has a lot of depth and yet has been mostly forgotten today. It just goes to prove that Edward G. Robinson can do more than just play the gangster. In fact, in this movie he plays BOTH a gangster and a wimpy middle-aged man who LOOKS like the gangster.

The movie does not really show the mad dog gangster much but centers on the wimpier character who is often mistreated and under-appreciated by those around him. When, by chance, he is mistaken for the mobster, the fun begins and it all works together for a charming little 1930s Hollywood ending.
