It shows its age a little bit, but come on, this was literally 3 years after the first "talkie" motion picture. Robinson plays a great gangster despite that he hasn't quite gotten the trademark look that he would grow into.

Disappointing film. Robinson could act in his sleep, but there wasn't a lot to work with. Rico started bad and he remained bad for the rest of the movie without much else going on. Douglas Fairbanks Jr. was barely in it. The Public Enemy and Scarface are better pre-code gangster films.

rumor has it that the "mother of god" quote was shot, put on a reel, and sent out to those states with the least draconian censor boards.

Public Enemy

You can thank the censor board for that quote. Originally it was Mother of God but they said you couldn't use God as a curse, onscreen.
