Breadline Saints and Sinners
Movie Lover: Diane Byrnes

-- May, 15, 2014
The grainy, poor quality of the print actually
gives the film the sort of realism you see in
documentaries about soup kitchens and
breadlines etc. Other than that the story is
the very standard one of an innocent man
being sent to prison and on his release just
itching to administer some rough justice on
the real criminals.
Along the way Jerry (William Collier Jnr.) gets
to know his enemy's cast off mistress, Molly.
It is sweet Blanche Mehaffey who doesn't
really convince when she tries to talk tough,
she's just too much of a sweetie, but comes
into her own when she becomes a staple at
the free food and bed mission and convinces
Jerry to forget about revenge and go straight.
Even though he only has a couple of scenes,
Walter Long, as the bad guy who wants to
bring the mission down, gives his role dimension
and definitely stands out from the rest of the
