Description by OLDIES.com:
Originally titled Thru Traffic, this production was filmed by Warner Brothers as a feature length thinly-veiled ad for the Perfect Circle Company, manufacturer of high-end piston rings. Despite its strong arguments in favor of pricey replacement parts for your auto, Speed Devils builds real dramatic momentum.
Red-haired Irish actor Paul Kelly hailed from the tough immigrant streets of Brooklyn where he began getting work as a child actor for Vitagraph. Following his teen years, he was poised for major stardom after strong performances in films such as Anne Of Green Gables (1919), The New Klondike (1926) and Special Delivery (1927). His career was derailed in 1928 when he served a year in prison for manslaughter, after a fist fight over his lover and future wife, actress Dorothy MacKaye. He bounced back after his parole and would work steadily for the next quarter century with memorable roles in The Roaring Twenties (1939), Flight Command (1940), Tarzan's New York Adventure (1942) and The Cat Creeps (1946). He also found success on television and Broadway winning a Tony Award in 1948 for his performance in Command Decision.
