Hulu has this online:
The New York Times calls it "an arresting, inductive consideration of the slum problem, a prima facie case for a revision of the social system" that "deserves a place among the important motion pictures of 1937 for its all-out and well-presented reiteration of the social protest that was the theme of the original Sidney Kingsley stage play."
