Movie re-watch (#32 this year): Little Caesar (1931, Mervyn LeRoy)

TCM had both "Public Enemy" and "Little Caesar" on recently. These are the two films that started the gangster genre. The public enemy was James Cagney and Little Caesar was Edward G Robinson. There is not much of a difference between the two. Little Caesar has some awkward moments but it also has Robinson. The year after this (1932) Robinson and LeRoy made the much superior "Two Seconds".


  1. Looks like a VW Variant Type 3. There is a Variant commercial featuring Dustin Hoffman here:

  2. That's probably what it was. It's hard to see in the picture but this car is actually a double-decker (looks like the trunk lid is up but actually there's another deck on top of the car). Maybe customized for a 7 footer?
