Baby Face Harrington is a comedic gangster-movie spoof, in which a man who is already having a hard time in his job, his social life, and his marriage, is kidnapped by a bunch of thugs. News that his wife plans to divorce him almost sends him reeling over the edge before, half-unwittingly, he becomes a hero of sorts.
Raoul Walsh, who directed the amiable gangster comedy Baby Face Harrington (1935), made several classics of the gangster genre, including Regeneration (1915), The Roaring Twenties (1939), High Sierra (1941) and White Heat (1949).
