Gang War / Broken Strings

1940 NR

A pair of Harlem-based dramas makes up this vintage double-feature collection. In Gang War, blood fills the streets as rival gangsters, including the vicious Bob "Killer" Meade (Ralph Cooper), fight for top boss status using whatever ruthless means necessary. In Broken Strings, after a car accident cripples his hands, embittered violin virtuoso Arthur Williams (Clarence Muse) must cope with the loss of his talent.
