About

Lang's third US picture, like Fury and You Only Live Once, deals with the subject of crime, but this time in a far less sombre manner. A real curiosity, the film is a lively mixture of musical, romantic comedy, gangster movie, social drama and Brechtian satire, the latter underlined by the songs of Kurt Weill. According to Lang, 'There's no question but Brecht was most responsible for the film.' The setting is a department store whose liberal owner employs mostly former prisoners.
