The first part felt heavy-handed and slow. Using a courtroom scene with witnesses, arguing for the lead character's noble character felt strange.
Annie's motivation for pushing her husband to a career in crime is thinly explained, although she was the more interesting character in the film.
Favorite scene: While her husband robs a bank in the background, Annie chats pointlessly to a policeman standing in front. It is not clear to me why she tries to grab his attention.
Great sets: The meat packaging company has some nice shots of hanging meat. Is that the earliest film to use this type of location?
