James Cagney kicks serious asphalt in director Howard Hawks' high-speed thrill ride co-starring Joan Blondell and Ann Dvorak. The fastest man on four wheels, Indy champ Joe Greer (Cagney) has strong ideas when it comes to flashy dames and his kid brother, Eddie (Eric Linden). So when the two come to blows over Eddie's refusal to give his brassy blond girlfriend (Blondell) the air, Joe is driven to drink, resulting in a car crash that destroys his nerve and threatens to wreck his career. Shot on location at the Ventura Raceway and the Indianapolis and Ascot Motor speedways, The Crowd Roars features appearances by eight pro-racers, including 1930 Indy winner Billy Arnold, and some of the wildest racing sequences to ever burn up the screen!
