Yeah, AwDF is corny, but also classy, beautifully shot by Sol Polito and directed by Michael Curtiz (The Adventures of Robin Hood, White Christmas, Captain Blood, Casablanca ), with some great performances from Cagney, Bogie, The Dead End Kids, Ann Sheridan and Pat O'Brien. Also awesome musical score from the legendary Max Steiner (King Kong, Casablanca and Gone With the Wind among many others).

This show has such a tortured production and "broadcast" history. I *almost* shy from watching it for fear of the massive disappointment so many critics and viewers reported.
But I think that I won't be due to the almost certain persistence of what is to me, the most important element of this show:
Not the plot.
