Tonally sickening film where Bogie (in his first starring role) joins the KKK and struggles against his own conscience - the Code mandates disaster. In a way, it's rather timely (and therefore timeless), but it's not a pleasant experience. Bogie's losing his all-American family is like watching Ward Cleaver planning hate crimes.

A rather bizarre movie where Bogie joins what is essentially a Ku Klux Klan surrogate to intimidate foreigners after he gets beat out for a promotion. I thought the movie did a pretty good job giving Bogie a fair amount of depth, allowing him to play a gray area in regards to how into being in the group he was. Unfortunately everyone else was either a saint or a devil. Definitely could have been better but it's worth a watch.

A dark story of nationalism packed with a political message. And Humphrey Bogart is one of those hoodies! Bogart does a tremendous job. The story is very interesting too, but I felt it lacked something to really take advantage of what they had here. This could have made such a strong impact with.... something. It's got all the ingredients needed for a lasting classic, but for some reason it doesn't quite reach it's potential. But no doubt a remarkable movie on so many levels.

Seems the only reason why this movie was made is to inform the public why racist organizations are bad. And it does it in a very blunt and primitive way.

The first half-hour or so plays like a sitcom. Doesn't really get going until the rather harrowing blood-oath scene. Bogart for the most part effective (and we see the start of his haunted-by-demons persona). On the whole though, not really long enough for anything to develop fully.
