The Racket is a 1927 Broadway three-act drama written by Bartlett Cormack
and produced by Alexander McKaig. It ran for 119 performances from November 22, 1927, to March 1928 at the
Ambassador Theatre. Edward G. Robinson had a major role as a
snarling gangster, which led to his being cast in similar film roles. It was included in Burns Mantle's
The Best Plays of 1927-1928.
It was adapted as a silent feature film also titled The Racket in 1928 and
the 1951 film noir remake The Racket, starring Robert Mitchum.
