Raoul Walsh Before the Code—Friday Special Event Pricing: Two Films for $15! Tracy and Bennett play a waterfront cop and his hash-slinging girlfriend in this raucous, working-class comedy. What plot there is centers on the gangster boyfriend who puts the pressure on Bennett’s sister (Burns), a bank employee, to facilitate a heist. But mostly the movie is a wonderfully casual series of gags and off-hand observations, filmed in a style that embraces both Walsh’s deep-focus realism and a surprising proto-modernism. A discussion and book signing with Dave Kehr will follow the screening.
