Wolf of New York – Movie 138 of 365

01 Aug

41+44sTtw7L._SX215_Returning to black and white again with a “bad” guy turned good tale.  In the 1940 feature Wolf of New York, the wolf is an attorney, Chris Faulkner (Edmund Lowe); talented, slick, and a bit shady who has never lost a case.  Well until former client gone straight Frankie Mason (Maurice Murphy) is accused of murder.  Although, this time he’s innocent. But all Faulkner’s talent doesn’t save Mason from a conviction and death sentence.

This changes Faulkner, he becomes obsessed with freeing Mason.  This not only brings him to rock bottom but through a twist sets him on the path to actually being a champion against crime.

This is not a bad movie, just your standard crime and courtroom drama.  Though not particularly compelling there is a solid storyline. Also the somewhat love story between him and his ex-girlfriend/ex-secretary Peggy Nolan (Rose Hobart) doesn’t send the plot off the rails into silliness as is often the case with these features. Actually Peggy is a very strong female character and my favorite in this feature.

All in all a nice little time killer of a movie at an hour and eight minutes long.
