(1936, Fritz Lang)

Preachy and melodramatic, but powerful film about the dangers of mob mentality.

Lang’s first English-language film stars Spencer Tracy as a wrongly accused man who seeks revenge after a lawless mob tries to burn him alive in a prison cell. Strong, angry filmmaking.

Also, according to IMDB, features Terry the dog, better known to us as Toto from The Wizard of Oz.
