"4.1. James Cagney haluaa olla rikollinen, joten hänen täytyy tehdä ultimaattinen uhraus: lopettaa normaali puhuminen ja vääntää jokainen lauseensa vinkuvalla nasaalilla. Gangsterinasaali tuo hänelle rahaa, valtaa ja naisia, mutta lopulta rikollisuus ei ilmeisesti kannata. 80 minuuttia menee nopeasti, mutta alan kyllä tässä vaiheessa harrastusta olla melko täynnä perinteisiä Hollywood-gangsterileffoja. Loppuratkaisu on sentään tympeydessään melkoisen hyvä."

"March 15 "Why that dirty, no good, yellow-bellied stool. I'm gonna give it to him right in the head the first time I see him." This was a very interesting classic gangster movie. It was an interesting to see a movie about the prohibition around the time when it was still going on and you can tell that this is a pre-code movie as it was pretty violent especially for the time it was made. James Cagney delivered a good if not also hammy performance and I was invested in the story from start to "
