Preuzeto s ovitka:


In this suvery of crime films, the author explains their particluar significance and relates them to the public consciousnessof crime at the times they were made. He draws parallels between the real-life racketeers of the Prohibition and the gangsters played in the films. He discusses such things as the role of the cop and the private eye; the innovent caught up in the web of the Syndicate; the tough detective and the sophisticated Thin Man; Hitchcock's tehnique of suspense; the increasing use of overt violence.

The sinster faces and styles, both past and present are here: Edward G. Robinson's nasal sneer, Bogart's sibilant menance, Widmark's snicker, Cagney's punchy cockiness, Mitchum's droopy-eyed brooding - all in a setting of molls, limousines, razors, machine guns, shadowy Bosses Upstairs and unfortunate Men Who Knew Too Much.
