| Screwball programmer is junky but fun
Report from 2006 Cinesation: BARS OF HATE (***) A letter will exonerate a man on Death Row; the governor is unreachable on a hunting trip; a deputy district attorney races to where he's supposed to be-- but so do the real killers. Sound exciting, even for a 1934 Sam Katzman cheapie? Well, it would be if it weren't totally nuts, a sort of screwball-programmer which gives over much of its running time (at least the part that isn't already stock footage) to Snub Pollard as a pickpocket who becomes deputy DA Regis Toomey's best buddy (for no reason that will be psychologically recognizable to anyone who has ever met a human being) and even gets to dress in women's clothing. Fun enough in its preposterous, Dada-screenplay way that it could become Cinesation's answer to Cinecon's legendary good-bad choice, Sh! The Octopus.
