Before Kander and Ebb's great Broadway musical, the true life story of boozy murderess Roxie Hart was told by producer Cecil B DeMille in this classic 1920s silent film. 

Phyllis Haver gives an astoundingly fine performance as the redoubtable Roxie Hart. This film may deal lightly with trials and juries, but there is throughout an element of truth in the action..it is a production that makes the most of the predicaments of a woman who has fired off a pistol in the heat of temper
— New York Times, 1927
