Acquitted 1929

Sam Hardy is unquestionably the star of this underworld drama which packs a punch in every reel. He plays the role of underworld king with more-than-usual humor. The story is so cleverly plotted, and so well directed, that obvious situations are given a new, exhilarating slant. Margaret Livingston and Lloyd Hughes are adequate as the two lovers. Really worth while, if you crave excitement. All Talkie.

Photoplay February 1930
