Description by OLDIES.com:
With a biting and witty script performed by a talented cast, Corruption is a dramatic tale of political intrigue. Evalyn Knapp is probably best known for playing the title role in sound version of The Perils of Pauline in 1933, the same year Corruption was released. Preston Foster, Tully Marshall and Warren Richmond deliver tough, realistic portrayals of strong men in the halls of power, but great character actor Mischa Auer steals the film in the shocking finale.
Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 158 ratings.
Maybe the movie and plot don't really deserve the four stars, but if you're a fan of these early films, this one is great. Excellent print, with fun sound effects added to the stereo track by Alpha. Pre-Code subject matter, and the dialogue can be enjoyably startling for an old movie. There are several moments of very interesting direction, reasonably tight editing, and the plot clicks right along. And it is fun to see silent star Tully Marchall in a speaking role.
