In the Gay '90s on New York's most infamous street, home to chancers, drunks and stumblebums — the lowest of the Lower East Side — a friendly rivalry between saloon keeper Wallace Beery and neighborhood daredevil George Raft intensifies into an all-out feud after the two begin vying for the affections of local beauty Fay Wray. Eager to make a name for himself, Raft cooks up a publicity stunt to jump off the Brooklyn Bridge — a boast that Beery intends to see him live up to or die trying. DIR Raoul Walsh; SCR Howard Estabrook, James Gleason, from the novel by Michael L. Simmons and Bessie Roth Solomon; PROD Joseph M. Schenck, Darryl F. Zanuck. U.S., 1933, b&w, 92 min. NOT RATED
