Film: Rowland Brown’s “Blood Money”

USA | 1933 | 35mm | 65 min.
Shady bailbondsman Bill Bailey (George Bancroft) falls hard for young thrill-seeker Elaine (Frances Dee), much to the chagrin of Bill’s old flame, nightclub owner Ruby Darling (Judith Anderson). When Ruby thinks Bill has double-crossed her bank-robbing brother, she asks her mob contacts to break him. In one of the definitive pre-code era movies, nearly every line of writer/director Rowland Brown’s wonderful dialogue has a double meaning! Funny and briskly paced, Blood Money would prove to be Brown’s third and final feature as director.
