GREAT 1941 film which is a classic of 'film noir' movies - which I greatly enjoy.
It's unfortunately a bit obscure, but I discovered it, and am glad I gave it a watch.
Lana Turner, Robert Taylor and Van Heflin all do excellent jobs - and overall film production, etc. is high quality.

Such a great movie!!!! Lana Turner at her most beautiful and a good story. Over the top but in a good way.

Van Heflin won Best Supporting Actor at the 1941 in one of the best screen performances ever given. Now that is quite a statement, but I think you will be a believer after seeing the film. "Johnny Eager" is a well written film with an outstanding cast. Robert Taylor plays Johnny Eager with simplicity and not going overboard. "Johnny Eager" is an historic classic movie with Van Heflin's great performance and should not be missed by any film lover!

One reason to watch...Van Heflin shows major acting chops.

Half a million bucks (by 1941's standards, mind you) simply to take the Sweater Girl, Lana Turner, away and make her happy--NSA. Just trying to wrap my head around that for a minute... Good flick. Oscar winner Van Heflin (Jeff) gets a little overly gooey over Johnny, though...

John Benson Farrell (to Johnny Eager): "You couldn't stop being a thief any more than a weasel could stop sucking chicken blood."
