Full movie description "The Secret 6":Bootlegger/cafe owner Ralph Bellamy recruits crude working man Wallace Beery to join his gang which is masterminded by crooked criminal defense lawyer Lewis Stone. Beery eventually takes over Bellamy's operation, beats a rival gang, becomes wealthy and dominates the city for several years until a secret group of 6 masked businessmen have him prosecuted and sent to the electric chair with the help of rival crusading newspapermen Clark Gable and Johnny Mack Brown. Waitress Jean Harlow is torn between her love for the honest newsman Brown and her financial dependence on her generous boss, Beery.
Reviews of the The Secret 6"The Secret Six" (1931) is a fine pre-noir gangster film, right up there with a few other well-known films from this period like "Little Caesar", "The Public Enemy" and "The Doorway to Hell". The direction is fluid, the acting lively and dynamic, and the cinematography quite noirish. There is footage of an actual bootleg still operation that is remarkable. MGM didn't stint on the sets either. Perhaps because director George Hill had been a cinematographer, the lighting in this film is memorable in night scenes and dark interiors. His "The Big House" (1930) is another one to see.
It's a gangster story, and they tend to follow a well-known path, which is the rise and fall of the central figure. Gangster movies depend on the novelty of the details and how the story is put across. This one features interesting characters played by Lewis Stone and Wallace Beery, especially the latter. Beery's gang lord begins in a slaughterhouse. He defers to Stone but comes into his own. He's likable but don't cross him. He's crude and lacks finesse, but he overcomes his background up to a point. He can't keep everyone loyal, however, and killing has its limitations.
Clark Gable is a fast-talking newsman. Johnny Mack Brown a competing newsman who romances Jean Harlow.
I'd rate this 3/4 or 7.5/10 if I could. I think more highly of it than Maltin or the IMDb tally, which are almost identical. It's really a nice piece of work that flows along quickly, providing acting and visual dividends as well as some story novelty along the way.
