Review

Our Score
One of the first films to gain cult director Roger Corman international recognition and critical acclaim, this is a vivid and fast-moving biopic about the infamous 1930s bank robber. Charles Bronson (in his first starring role) brings an edgy intensity to Kelly, the audacious gangster who - in what may be considered the greatest anticlimax in crime history - finally surrendered to the FBI rather than be killed in a shoot-out. Rapid-fire dialogue and effective characterisations all down the line make this Corman quickie a real winner.

Summary

A small time crook has considerable success at committing bank robberies, but one turns out to have devastating consequences. Drama, starring Charles Bronson, Susan Cabot and Morey Amsterdam.
