Manhattan Melodrama

Rated NR 93 minutes 1934

This 1934 feature was the last movie John Dillinger saw before being gunned down outside the Biograph, and he might have had better luck on both counts. “A time-killer,” wrote Don Druker in his original Reader commentary. “Clark Gable, William Powell, and Myrna Loy star in what was to become a perennial drama: two pals grow up on opposite sides of the law, and the lovely lady is caught between.” Directed by W.S. Van Dyke.
