| Good second feature that could have been more
The Man Who Talked Too Much presumably refers to George Brent, who plays a district attorney who sends an innocent man to the death house. To compensate for his mistake he becomes a struggling defense lawyer, eventually taking on some nasty gangland types in order to make ends meet. The film starts in terrific fashion and is well acted and written throughout, but it eventually bogs down into a standard 'B' plot of frame-ups and revenge. Nevertheless I recommend this to anyone interested in second features, and it certainly has the grit one expects of Warner crime films. Watch for Marc Lawrence in one of his patented bad guy roles.
