Cagney Heads Impressive Cast
This film certainly has an attractive cast with three Hall-Of-Fame actors and the very pretty Ann Sheridan.

James Cagney, my favorite actor of classic films, once again steals most of the scenes. He just dominates the screen and gets you very involved with his character, especially at the end. Pat O’Brien plays his normal somewhat-liberal and likable priest role and Humphrey Bogart is convincing as the crooked lawyer. Bogart was the bad guy in most films until he became a big star a couple years after this film.

The “Dead End Kids” are a pretty tough bunch. Seeing them play basketball is quite a sight – more like rugby. It must be one of the highlights of this entertaining film because I remember it so well….it was so different from any other basketball game I’ve ever seen!

The shootout-and-chase scene near the end was well-done with some great film-noir photography and the ending of the movie is quite memorable. Frankly, the first time I saw this I thought it was overrated but after the second viewing – and then seeing a nice transfer on DVD – I changed my mind. It is anything but overrated.

A wonderful example of the Warner Brothers gangster flick of the 1930s
This movie was very, very similar to MANHATTAN MELODRAMA (MGM–1934), though this film combined this earlier flick with the Dead End Kids (an earlier incarnation of the East Side Kids or the Bowery Boys). Both films featured a smart and street-wise hood who is very likable (Gable and Cagney), a close fried who believes in them (William Powell as the DA and Pat O’Brien as a priest) and an ending in which the thug “does the right thing”. As I said, the big difference was the addition of the Dead End Kids–as young punks who idolize Jimmy Cagney. And while I usually HATED the Dead End Kids/Bowery Boys/East Side Kids, in this film they were a pretty welcome addition, as they were used less as comic relief and more as integral parts of the story. Because of this, Leo Gorcey and Huntz Hall (stars in the later incarnations of “the kids”) were less stupid, annoying and important to the gang–being secondary characters at best.

The story and acting is pure 1930s Warner Brothers gangster fare. While some might find this very, very formulaic and even dull, I like the predictability because the production values are so high and the films are just plain fun. Sure it isn’t Shakespeare or Masterpiece Theatre, but it does entertain.
