Early talkie with an interesting lineup that features two huge stars (Spencer Tracy and Humphrey Bogart) making their first credited feature film. John Ford directs this light drama about the goings-on at a prison. Bogart plays a prison trustee who falls for a female prisoner. He's paroled and the two plan to get married when she gets out. But her former partner in crime tries to ruin their happy ending. Enter Spencer Tracy and Warren Hymer as two likable convicts who break out of prison to help Bogie. A lot of excitement about a prison baseball game, too.
Tracy and Hymer are terrific. Surprised no one thought to team them up in more comedies but it's probably better for all of us that they didn't or else we might not have gotten some of the classics Tracy made. Bogie is such a baby face in this. He really aged a lot by the time his star took off. Early appearance by Ward Bond in a John Ford movie. William Collier, Sr. is fun as veteran inmate Pop. Entertaining, pleasant-going movie that makes prison seem like a nice way to spend your summer!
