Overview

Invisible Stripes is a cookie-cutter Warners prison drama which rounds up the usual suspects. George Raft and Humphrey Bogart are top-billed, and as is often the case in such a circumstance, it is Raft who is given the larger (albeit less interesting) role. Raft plays Cliff Taylor, an ex-convict who finds that his "invisible stripes" prevent him from getting a decent job. Cliff's younger brother (William Holden) shows unfortunate signs of following his older sibling's footsteps when he is pressured into crime to support himself and his girl friend (Jane Bryan). To save his brother, Cliff joins Humphrey Bogart's gang and earns enough dishonest money to set his brother up in business. But movie censorship prevails, and all of the miscreants in Invisible Stripes--even those motivated by good intentions--must pay the penalty. Side note: The prankish Humphrey Bogart spent so much time needling newcomer William Holden that Holden nearly came to blows with the older actor; the animosity persisted into the Bogart-Holden costarring feature Sabrina, made fourteen years later.

This volume is good, but far from great. I own all four volumes from this collection, but I should have stopped after volume two. The first set was absolutely amazing. The second volume contained hits and misses. The last two sets were just disappointing.

Before watching these 5 movies you must have in mind that these movies were acted by some of the most popular crime drama stars of the 30's and 40's namely Bogart, Raft and Robinson and produced by the most socially conscience Movie Studio in existence. Kid Galahad was Directed by Michael(casablanca)Curtiz. Amazing Dr. Clitterhouse had John(treasure of sierra madre)Huston as its screenwriter. Larceny Inc. was and still is one of the funniest crime comedies ever made. Invisible Stripes was originally a book written by Warden Lewis E. Lawes of Sing Sing Prison. Little Giant was Robinson's follow up to his classic Little Ceasar. On top of all that there is also a Documentary titled Public Enemies, what more can you ask for. You must also buy the previous volumes in this DVD series to complete your Gangster library
