Best Crime Movies of 1928 : Interference


7.0/10 IMDB

Paramount's first all-talking picture, Interference was dismally directed by Roy Pomeroy, whose lofty status as the studio's "technical wizard" did not necessarily qualify him to be a director. Evelyn Brent heads the cast as scheming Deborah Kane, who sets out to blackmail Faith Marley (Doris Kenyon), the above-reproach wife of Sir John Marlay.

Starring: William Powell, Evelyn Brent, Clive Brook, Doris Kenyon, Tom Ricketts, Brandon Hurst, Louis Payne, Wilfred Noy, Donald Stuart, Raymond Lawrence ..

Me, Gangster

6.5/10 IMDB

There are excellent dramatic performances by Carole Lombard and June Collyer (both of them better known for comedy roles) and a genuinely impressive performance by Don Terry in the lead role, leaving me to wonder why this actor never went on to a significant career.

Starring: June Collyer, Don Terry, Anders Randolf, Stella Adams, Al Hill, Walter James, Gustav von Seyffertitz, Nigel De Brulier, Arthur Stone, Carole Lombard ..
Release date: 1928-10-20
