Almost true to life, eh? Lady Killer (1933)

Lady KillerHustler gets hustled, goes to Hollywood and hits big. Hustler’s friends arrive to hustle him again… and get hustled in return. All this and the boy gets the girl too.

Very simple Cagney gangster type film, but lighter on the bullets. It rolls along at a fair pace and sews itself up pretty well. With revisits from some ‘Pubic Enemy’ cast-mates, Cagney does a great job turning out ‘A’ list material in a ‘B’ list film, just as his career was built on.
