Directed by Lloyd Bacon | Edward G. Robinson, Jane Bryan
What’s a bootlegger to do when the Volstead Act is repealed? Sell a legal beer, that’s what. Edward G. Robinson is Remy Marco, an ex-gangster so tough nobody has the nerve to tell him the beer he’s brewing (which he’s never tasted) is awful. He’s got a wife to appease, a daughter to educate, bankers foreclosing on his mansion and four dead gangsters, courtesy of a rival gang who holed up in his house. Robinson has a lot of fun lampooning his old tough guy roles in this satisfying comedy.
