Vivid melodrama about race car drivers and their romances. Full Review

It's exciting melodrama with plenty of ring action, some plausible romance and several corking good characterizations. Full Review

Rating: 3.5/4 -- Some directors knew just what to do with sound even in the early years of the 'talkies.' Howard Hawks' 'The Crowd Roars' -- the very title promises a boisterous soundtrack -- opens with the rumble of race cars and closes with the wail of ambulance sirens. Full Review

Description by

The fastest man on four wheels, Indy champ Joe Greer (James Cagney) has strong ideas when it comes to flashy dames and his kid brother, Eddie (Eric Linden). So when the two come to blows over Eddie's refusal to give his brassy blond girlfriend (Joan Blondell) the air, Joe is driven to drink, resulting in a car crash that destroys his nerve and threatens to wreck his carrer.
