When retired racket boss John Sarto tries to reclaim his place and former friends try to kill him, he finds solace in a monastery and reinvents himself as a pious monk.
Of the five films that Edward G. Robinson and Humphrey Bogart made together, this is the only one in which neither is killed. The other films are Bullets or Ballots (1936), Kid Galahad (1937), The Amazing Dr. Clitterhouse (1938), and Key Largo (1948).
Little Johnny Sarto:
Look, mum. Got any kids?
Scrub Woman at End: No. I ain't got nothing.
Little Johnny Sarto: Well, you got something now.
When Johnny is in the monastery and sees the newspaper article about Flo's engagement to Clarence, the entire article is shown on-screen. When Johnny reads the story aloud, he adds in the sentence "Never in my life, Miss Addams told reporters, have I been so thrilled and happy." That sentence did not appear in the news article.
