"There has never been a more fiery, sizzling apocalyptic ending for a film than the one in this Warner Bros.' late gangster film. In the film's final sequence, mother-fixated, tormented gangster Cody Jarrett (James Cagney) and his gang rob a huge chemical plant. One by one, the other members of his gang are killed during the ambush, but Jarrett rambles with berserk boasts to the last-remaining gang member Ryley: "They think they've got Cody Jarrett. They haven't got Cody Jarrett. You hear? They "
