Cine negro, una peli entretenida, una guapísima Lana Turner, un jovencísimo Van Helfin, un estupendo Eduard Harnold y un duro, pero atractivo Robert Taylor, ¿qué más se puede pedir?12 octubre 2015
"Their steamy onscreen chemistry carried over to real life, as the married Taylor fell hard for the sexy 21-year old blonde bombshell. In her autobiography, Turner admits to a romance, but not an affair. She says she "flirted," but she didn't want to be responsible for breaking up Taylor's marriage to Barbara Stanwyck. Taylor, however, told his wife that he was in love with Turner and asked for a divorce. Turner says she then cooled the flirtation, and Taylor stayed married. Whatever the truth, the attraction between the two stars only helped the film. More importantly, both stars showed some real acting chops in Johnny Eager, and proved that they were more than just pretty faces.
