Small time in the Big Easy

2 months ago at Aug 5 20:54
'Little Caesar' had many interest points. Edward G. Robinson was a fine actor, who dominated when in lead roles and stole scenes in support. Mervyn LeRoy, in one of his earliest films here, went on to do a lot of solid and more films. Douglas Fairbanks Jr was good in the right roles and Glenda Farrell also had a knack for scene stealing.

I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this flick but since it seemed to have a solid reputation (it is included in the ‘1001 Movies You Must Before You Die’ list among other things), I was quite eager to check it out. Well, to be honest, I don’t think this movie grew old very well. I mean, 90 years after it was released, so many vastly superior gangster flicks have been released such as... read more
View all Little Caesar reviews
The ambitious criminal Rico (Edward G. Robinson) moves from the country to the big city in the east and joins Sam Vettori's (Stanley Fields) gang with his friend Joe Massara (Douglas Fainbanks Jr.). Sooner he becomes the leader of the gangsters and known as Little Caesar, and gets closer to the great mobster Pete Montana (Ralph Ince). In a robbery of a night-club, he kills the Crime Commissioner Alvin McClure (Landers Stevens) and his pal Joe witnesses the murder. When Rico orders Joe to leave his mistress Olga Strassoff (Glenda Farrell), she takes a serious decision.

Small time in the Big Easy

“'Little Caesar' had many interest points. Edward G. Robinson was a fine actor, who dominated when in lead roles and stole scenes in support. Mervyn LeRoy, in one of his earliest films here, went on to do a lot of solid and more films. Douglas Fairbanks Jr was good in the right roles and Glenda Farrell also had a knack for scene stealing. Also highly appreciate gangster pictures and have done so for some time now, ever since seeing 'The Godfather' for the first time ten years ago.Is 'Little Caesar' one of the best gangster films? Definitely not, others have held up much better. Regardless of what one's opinion of the film though (and it is an easy target for criticism as well as praise), it is hard to deny that it was ground-breaking and important to the development and history of the gangs” read more

Movies the giraffe watched in 2018: June (27 movies items)

"First viewing - June 24th After doing my chores at home I settled in to watch some movies. I kicked off my run with Little Caesar, the film that turned Edward G. Robinson into a star. And of course he's excellent as the titular gangster whose rise and fall is the center of the film. What I found most interesting though is that it's strongly suggested throughout the film that he's a homosexual. That's pretty risky given when the film came out, but I guess since it's never openly discussed they w"
