Marked Woman

Ladies of the night: Isabel Jewell, Mayo Methot, and Lola Lane in Marked Woman (dir. Lloyd Bacon, 1937).

Tough B-girl Bette Davis testifies against the mob with the help of bland good-guy attorney Humphrey Bogart. "Ripped from the headlines" surrounding the Lucky Luciano trial. The film has a nice look (love those swirling thirties montage sequences full of glittering cocktail glasses and laughing drunks in tuxes), and Davis is swell.
