Critic Reviews for Speakeasy

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (2)

This is an all-talking picture -- despite the title! It's one of the clearest examples of what a really good sound picture can be.

Other inaccuracies mark a picture which as a story seems too disjointed to entertain rustics and as reporting, too slipshod to amuse metropolites.

May 12, 2021 | Full Review…

Less because of the story it has to tell and more because of the imaginative manner in which it is told, Speakeasy becomes a fast-moving, vivid and often exciting entertainment.

May 12, 2021 | Full Review…

A well made pugilistic picture, in which the interest is maintained well all the way through.
