Rating: 76/100 -- Edward G. Robinson's gravelly snarl and sociopathic disdain for human conventions became the template for countless future gangster anti-heroes Full Review

The genius of Edward G. Robinson's performance as the pint-sized mobster lies in its diffidence.

Faded bronze to The Public Enemy's silver and Scarface's gold, but an enduring bedrock formation all the same Full Review

Though it looks somewhat dated now, there's no denying the seminal importance of this classic adaptation of WR Burnett's novel. Full Review

No director could ask for more than Edward G. Robinson's contribution. Here, no matter what he has to say, he's entirely convincing. Full Review

Product Description:

With its focus on character flaws instead of plot devices, LITTLE CAESAR is the mother of the modern gangster flick. Edward G. Robinson stars as Enrico Bandelli in the role that made him a household name. Bandelli moves to the big city with partner in crime Joe Massara (Douglas Fairbanks Jr.) and becomes a member of Sam Vettori's Mafia gang. In spite of the urgings of pretty girl Olga Strassoff (Glenda Farell) to quit the mob, Rico quickly becomes the head of the Vettori gang and with a couple of quick kills scares mob boss Arnie Lorch back to Detroit. Bandelli, dubbed Little Caesar by the press, is known as a boss in his own right, but what goes up must come down in this tale of excessive hubris. At the time of its release, the stacatto sound design for LITTLE CAESAR was leagues ahead of its early talkie contemporaries. But what keeps the film alive is the fine script and the startling performance from Edward G. Robinson.
