  • "While this film's success and the coming of sound launched the vogue for the gangster film, Underworld is nevertheless more of a pre-gangster film - a prototype for a 'von Sternberg film' rather than for the genre. Hecht's outline was based on his experiences as a journalist in Chicago but Sternberg was not interested in the sociological aspects of the story of a gangster, 'Bull' Weed, his mistress, 'Feathers', and a fallen ex-attorney rescued by Weed from alcoholism. Bull occupies a world of his own (and von Sternberg's) creation exemplified by the gangster's ball ('a devil's carnival'). He is elevated to heroic status by the admission of doubt and suspicion on his part which makes possible Weed's ungeneric redemption after his fall."@en
