Cinema Diary - Vol 4 E7 - Nov & Dec (38 movies items)

" Well, this wasn't like anything I was expecting. It isn't the typical gangster glorified life of crime nor is it one of those sappy 'kids need a mentor' films. The ending is as disturbing as it is touching. When they say "They don't make them like they used to" that would include films like this."

The Boy Who Couldn't Run as Fast as I Could

“Angels with Dirty Faces begins with Rocky Sullivan (James Cagney) and Jerry Connelly (Pat O’Brien) as childhood friends being chased by the police for robbery. Jerry could run faster than his friend and in a pivotal scene gets away from the police after climbing over a fence, while Rocky is caught by the police as he tries to make it over. Jerry goes on to become a priest, Rocky is sent to a reformatory which ironically causes him to escalate into a life or crime.

The entire events of the movie are based on this one scene, depending on which character got over the fence in time determined their destiny. That’s one of the main things I like about Angels with Dirty Faces, it proposes the age old idea that the idea that people’s entire destiny’s can be determined by one sm” read more
