Blood Money | Chicago Reader

Blood Money

Rowland Brown directed only three movies, but if this 1933 crime melodrama is any indication, he had a masterful sense of story and a surprisingly jaundiced wit. George Bancroft stars as a slimy, glad-handing LA bail bondsman; when someone at a prizefight observes that he hasn't picked a winner all night he cracks, "I make all my money on losers." He's got the city sewn up, but he isn't prepared for Frances Dee, a sexy socialite with a lust for underworld thrills. This was Brown's last feature, though he went on to write Angels With Dirty Faces and Kansas City Confidential.
