Baby Face Nelson
The violent life and death of one of America's most notorious 1930s gangsters is chronicled in this gripping drama that features Mickey Rooney as the psychotic killer Baby Face Nelson. Unfortunately, while the tale has its exciting moments, the story is largely fictional.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's taut, fast, simple, and electrically cathartic."
‑ Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader
"A thoroughly standard, pointless and even old-fashioned gangster picture, the kind that began going out along with the oldtime sedans."
‑ Bosley Crowther, New York Times
"Raw and twitchy gangster biopic about a thirties public enemy Number No. 1 is typical bang-bang stuff."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
