WARNER ARCHIVE: The Last Gangster (1937)

Probably left off by mistake as part of Monday's new wave, WBShop has now listed the Edward G. Robinson/James Stewart crime drama The Last Gangster.

Like father like son. Gang kingpin Joe Krozac looks forward to the day his now-infant son will walk in his bloody footsteps and run his crime racket. The Feds have other ideas. They convict Joe of tax evasion and put him behind triple-steel bars for 10 years. During that time, Joe’s wife divorces him, builds a reputable new life in another city with a new husband, raises her son and fears the day Joe may find them. He does.

The Last Gangster stars one of the screen’s first gangsters: Edward G. Robinson in snarling, imperial, brutal Little Caesar mode. James Stewart, on the cusp of renown, co-stars. And William A. Wellman, whose The Public Enemy matched Little Caesar in seminal gangster-era impact, co-wrote the film’s story.

It is now available for rent at ClassicFlix, but may be approximately four weeks before it's available for shipment.

This new release brings the total Warner Archive titles exclusively available for rent at ClassicFlix.com to 306.
