Gang Boss Takes the Rap

"If it wasn't for men like me, they wouldn't need men like you," the gang boss tells the district attorney as he is starting his perp walk in handcuffs as the movie fades to black. Lowell Sherman, son of stage performers, was a successful silent screen actor who not only made the transition to talking movies but also made the more difficult transition to director. In this crime adventure he directs and stars in a Godfather like crime story that pits him against his second in command Rocky, played by Hugh Trevor. Sherman is gang boss Gene Fenmore, a suave upper-class gentleman who hob-knobs with the cream of society and also is the secret boss of the biggest gangster organization in the city. What makes this gang different than most is that the boss and his gang only rob from businessmen who are crooked . . . and they never shoot or kill anyone . . . But Rocky, young and cocky and the guy who wants to take over thinks that the gentle ways of the gang should change. The tension is thick between them, especially since Rocky is dating the boss' old girlfriend . . . after taking his girl, he wants to take over the gang as well. A young couple who want to get married gets mixed up with this gang and they become the pawns that Rocky uses to get at the boss. Director and star Lowell Sherman deftly becomes the gangster boss with class . . . the gangster boss that we like and feel sorry for when the chips are down. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter on it and enjoy the show.
