One of the greatest gangster movies ever made, recently restored for your viewing pleasure!
Dir Howard Hawks
With Paul Muni, Ann Dvorak, Karen Morley, Boris Karloff
Recently restored, and still one of the greatest gangster movies ever made, Hawks’ darkly witty account of the rise and fall of Tony Camonte equates his quest for money and power with a sexual libido so strong it’s almost incestuous, and with a blatantly bestial energy (and intelligence). Visual and verbal puns abound, while Muni manages to make Camonte funny and frightening, charming and pathetic.
