"The visually impressive and chilling, downbeat fade-out ending when hunted, falsely-accused fugitive James Allen (Paul Muni) responded to his fiancee Helen (Helen Vinson) about how he lived - "I steal" - as he receded into the shadowy darkness."

" Paul Muni gives a powerful and impressive performance as a man wrongly sentenced to work on a chain gang after getting accidentally involved in a robbery gone wrong.

" Despite the B-movie title, this is one of the best early talkie's. I've only seen Paul Muni in three films date, but with each performance being so different, I would have never guessed it was the same actor."
