Hell’s Highway (1932)

This is a terrific little film (especially given it’s from 1932) about characters who are sentenced to a chain gang and the terrible conditions they face. Sometimes 1930′s movies suffer from bad music, chattery dialogue and silly distractions but this is a very nice well shot piece of antique cinema. Richard Dix plays the top dog on a chain gang.
