Angels With Filthy Souls

8 years, 1 month ago at Jan 7 13:59
*** This review contains spoilers ***One of the things I love most about Angels with Dirty Faces is that proposes the age-old idea of a person’s entire destiny being defined by one single event. The fact that Jerry (Pat O’Brien) could run faster than his childhood friend Rocky (James Cagney) while being chased by the police for a petty crime would determine the paths they would take in life.

Had a lot of high hopes for 'Angels With Dirty Faces'. There are many great gangster films out there, some cinematic milestones, and when one talks about actors that excelled in this type of film James Cagney is somewhere near the top of the list.

View all Angels with Dirty Faces reviews
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.

“Had a lot of high hopes for 'Angels With Dirty Faces'. There are many great gangster films out there, some cinematic milestones, and when one talks about actors that excelled in this type of film James Cagney is somewhere near the top of the list. Really like to love a lot of Michael Curtiz's, a great and very versatile director, films, especially 'Casablanca', 'The Adventures of Robin Hood' and 'Mildred Pierce' and even lesser efforts are watchable.'Angels With Dirty Faces' blew me away. It is up there with the best gangster films of all time to me and many others, which is evident from how massively influential it is and how often it's imitated. 'Angels With Dirty Faces' is also one of Curtiz's best films, well certainly among my favourites of his as of now anyway, one of Cagney's finest” read more

"James Cagneyna tunnettu pallosalama puhdasta energiaa puettuna sulavalla gepardin letkeydellä liikkuvan pikkumiehen kehoon vapautuu vankilasta. Kulmakunnan umpikujapojat alkavat idolisoida suulasta coolia rikosmiestä ja siitäpä ei Cagneyn lapsuudenkaveri, seurakunnan katuviisas pappi tykkää lainkaan. "
