Review: Fog Over Frisco (1934)

This middling gangster yarn fizzles once Bette Davis is out of the picture.

This dull crime drama is most fun when characters are careening through the streets of San Francisco in their block-long automobiles; the location footage providing a neat time capsule of the city three years before the Golden Gate Bridge opened. Davis gives a lively performance as the doomed good time girl who likes to run with a bad crowd. The story, on the other hand, isn’t that interesting. The film suffers from too much plot stuffed into a 68-minute running time, with characters blah-blah-blahing most of the important details to the audience. Bor-ing. [*1/2 out of 5]
