Named to the National Film Registry by the U.S. Library of Congress in 2006.
This expose dramatization was made 100 years ago, but this traffic still exists today. Only, in real life, the police usually do accept the bribe, and a little something else, too.
I think it was a good film. But, it should have had more subtitles telling you more of what was going on. Too many scenes, especially in the beginning- were hard to understand as there were too few explainations or written lines.
I appreciate the modernity of it, the obverse and the reverse of the 20th century modernity.
