The Gangsters, the Cops, and the Blonde
After watching this 1933 police adventure I am more convinced than ever that the more things change, the more they stay the same. One of my very best friends is a retired Sheriff's Deputy who shared enough stories of his adventures with law enforcement that the two partners in this movie look very familiar to me. For several years, Donald and I were partners in a part-time business, and our relationship was much like that of the two cops in this movie. I can easily imagine Donald as one of these two partners - of course, he'd be the one that got the girl.
These two police detectives bicker, fight, and compete over everything – especially girls. In one scene where the police partners are sharing a jail cell, one is working on a crossword puzzle in the newspaper and needs a four-letter word that means 'trouble.' His partner answers quickly that the word must be 'g-i-r-l' - and he is so right.
Unfortunately, neither cop realizes that the beautiful blonde they are chasing is part of a ring of gangsters terrorizing the city. When one of the partners becomes a star witness for a murder committed by one of the gangsters, he is marked for death, and the beautiful blonde will deliver him into the hands of his killers. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
