Since Reveal Shot launched in January, some of the most popular posts have been from the series on the Warner Bros. gangster films of the 1930s.
Here are all five installments in the series, in order. Future posts will offer analyses of additional films in the genre that weren’t explored in detail during the series.
Part I: Gangster films of the 1930s and their many levels of fascination
Part V: “The Roaring Twenties”: Unforgettable action overshadows plot trouble in ’39 Warner Bros. saga
There was also a post, separate from the series, on Howard Hughes’ 1932 version of “Scarface.”
