James Cagney's tough guy tour-de-force. Charismatic gangster Rocky Sullivan, whose rise to underworld kingpin and cocky persona make him a hero to a gang of slum punks, returns to his old neighborhood to settle old scores and reunite with old friends. A supporting cast of top talents include Humphrey Bogart as a scheming, spineless lawyer, Ann Sheridan as a hard-edged old flame, The Dead End Kids as the worshipful street urchins, and Pat O'Brien as the boyhood pal-turned-priest who vows to end Rocky's negative influence over ghetto youth. The chilling finale caps off one of the more finessed and humanized films of the genre.

100 Greatest Golden Age Hollywood Films (100 movies items)

"During the 1930s, the Gangster film genre was one of cinema's most popular attractions. However, fears about the heightened levels of violence depicted in these movies, as well as the possibility that audiences would identify with the charismatic criminals, led to the tightening up of censorship rules in the industries Production Code. Subsequently, Gangster films shifted their focus to either the law officers tracking down the criminals or else to criminals for whom redemption was not out of th"
