This late-20s gangster movie features Carole Lombard as a young gal who agrees to marry a smooth-talking gangster in exchange for the mob man's pledge to arrange a big-time concert appearance for her violinist boyfriend. The only thing that can save the day for the mis-aligned lovers is a shootout between the cops and the gangland thugs. This film is notable because it is one of the early 'talkies," and uses the newly developing audio technology with abandon. In fact, most of the action takes place off screen and the characters tell the cameras just what's happened. This one's small on sets, big on dialog.The Racketeer featuring Robert Armstrong and Carole Lombard is streaming with subscription on Paramount+, streaming on Epix, and available for purchase on Prime Video. It's a crime and drama movie with a less than average IMDb audience rating of 5.4 (382 votes).
