Product Overview

Prohibition's ban on booze is over, and that means bootlegger Remy Marco must make some changes. Don't go calling his beer-peddling enterprise a racket. It's now a business. Employees are no longer lugs or palookas, they're associates. And don't refer to Marco as da boss. Use sir. He's gone legit, seeEdward G. Robinson plays Marco, spoofing his Little Caesar persona in a comedy spree based on Damon Runyon and Howard Lindsay's Broadway play. Lloyd Bacon, director of Robinson's gangster sendups Brother Orchid and Larceny, Inc., guides with screwball flair as corpses, creditors, the swellest of swells and more mayhem descend on Marco. Allen Jenkins, Edward Brophy and Harold Huber with 340+ career credits between them are among the lugs-cum-associates. You're about to open a major case of laughter.Running Time: 85 min.Format: DVD MOVIE

Review This is a film for lovers of old screwball comedies such as Bringing Up Baby. The uninitiated will consider the movie to be a prehistoric relic...Edward G. Robinson had a wonderful film career, but he was never really able to shake the gangster persona that had made him a star. For ever role that stepped away from the stereotype, such as an insurance detective in Double Indemnity, there was a return to form as a racketeer, such as in Key of classic screwball comedies will enjoy its flavor. Robinson is in good form throughout, and perhaps that is the film's ultimate contribution.

John J. Puccio, DVD Town as a screwball comedy...remains as funny today as when it was made.
