    Except for poor sound quality,this movie deserves to stand among the greatest gangster films.Liked it better than Scarface,definitely similar in many ways to THE ROARING TWENTIES,but Big Shot not quite an early Bogie in Roaring Twenties.Beretti falls hard for Frank's sister,loses his life on a daring mission for her,while hubby Randolph Scott is no where around.Can see John Ford's hand all thru this pic,and as I said before,the only flaw is the sound.

    Born Reckless (Fox-1930) is a curious early entry in John Ford's filmography.It looks like a prequel to Warner Brother's 1939 gangster film The Roaring Twenties.Instead of James Cagney as war hero/gangster Eddie Bartlett, we have Edmund Lowe as war hero/gangster Louis Beretti. Instead of Humphrey Bogart as a rival gangster/villain George Hally, we have Warren Hymer as Mr. Big. Strange casting to say the least.Even stranger is the uncredited supporting cast.Ward Bond plays an army drill sargent - a lot of people caught this, but apparently I am the first person to notice that Randolph Scott plays Dick Milburn, husband of the sister of Beretti's late war buddy.Makes you wonder what John Ford's post-war westerns would have been like with Randolph Scott instead of John Wayne.A curiosity, but worth a look.
