    Enjoying the movie, almost makes prisoner look like a frat house. HOWEVER, did I just hear one of the guys in black face (awkward scene) just refer to his musical instrument as a bazooka? I know that was the nickname for a WWII weapon, but most references credit the term to an instrument created about 1935 by a radio star. This could be an interesting bit of note.

    The only screen pairing of a young Bogart and Tracy is the main reason to see this film. It takes place in a prison filled with baseball playing, band practice and talent shows. A knife throwing sequence looks realistic, because it was. Blackface segment is over mercifully quick.Originally written as a drama, which explains the low-key comedy throughout. The print is quite damaged, and disrupts the dialogue at inopportune times.

    One of Tracy's better comedies, backed by Warren Hymer, reliable Robert O'Connor and Bogart.
