Vice Squad ★★ 1931

Lukas is forced to turn police informer to save his own neck, which almost ruins him. Just when he thinks he's free of the cops they come back threatening the woman he loves unless he plays stoolie again. Rather flat, but the different cop/criminal angle makes for some unusual twists. 80m/B VHS . Paul Lukas, Kay Francis, Helen Johnson, William B. Davidson, Esther Howard; D: John Cromwell; C: Charles B(ryant) Lang Jr.
