Joan Blondell, one of Hollywoods most memorable blondes, gets top billing in this protofeminist crime yarn as tough as a taxi dancers heart. Blondells first starring role was also a change of pace for a contract player usually cast as a chorus cutie orthe male leads loyal doxy. Instead she plays the title character, a Depression-downtrodden waif who uses her brains instead of her body to rise from tyro con artist to crime boss. A terrific supporting cast Chester Morris, Allen Jenkins. Mae Busch, Sterling Holloway comes along for the rags-to-rackets ride through all the murder and double-crossing that make crime melodrama great entertainment. This time with a womans touch. **Please be aware that this is a manufactured on demand disc that was created using a DVD-R disc. It should play in all standard DVD players.
