Sergeant Madden, the 1939 Josef von Sternberg family relationship crime crooked cop romantic melodrama ("Beery's back in 'Big House' thrills!"; a wild story of an Irish cop whose dream is to have his adopted son become a cop too; but after his son joins the force, he gets in big trouble and is sent to Sing Sing, and escapes, and the father resigns in disgrace, but when the son kills some people his father lures him into a trap, and the son is killed by police) starring Wallace Beery (in the title role as Sergeant Madden), Tom Brown, Alan Curtis, Laraine Day (in her 5th role, her first where she is billed as "Laraine Johnson"), and Fay Holden. Note that this was a very unusual extremely downbeat movie, something that MGM rarely did. No doubt this was because it was directed by Josef von Sternberg, but one suspects that he was at odds with the studio and wanted to make an even bleaker movie than what ended up on the screen!

Important Added Info: Note that this still shows Marlene Dietrich paying a surprise visit to the set of this movie (because it was directed by the man who had made some of her best early movies, Josef von Sternberg)!
