This film is more of a stylized melodrama about wealth inequality on the whole, but the entire project is elevated by Humphrey Bogart’s bravura performance. He creates a tragically menacing figure as the character of Baby Face Martin, tragic in that you can see his rough childhood on his now menacing visage. On the run from the law and bitter from the wrongs that society has done to him, he feel... read more

Overall, not a good movie, to me, thought there were elements that I'll mention in a minute. Clunky moralizing social drama; dull and talky. I found the Dead End Kids to be bad actors and just not worth watching. If you happened to be a fan of theirs from other movies, you might see this one totally differently from me.

The good elements were isolated pleasures for me; they couldn'... read more

The Dead End Kids are introduced in their intricate East Side slum, overlooked by the apartments of the rich. Their antics, some funny, some vicious, alternate with subplots: unemployed architect Dave is torn between Drina, sweet but equally poor, and Kay, a rich man's mistress; gangster Baby Face Martin returns to his old neighborhood and finds that nobody is glad to see him. Then violent crime, both juvenile and adult, impacts the neighborhood and its people.

"7.4. 2023 "Dead End" introduces several quite interesting subplots: a group of poor kids living in the slums of New York waste their time by fighting and robbing people. A notorious gangster is also staying in the same slums while trying to avoid any contact with police. An unemployed architect admires two different women and just like many other people he also dreams about better and easier life. "Dead End" isn't one of the most memorable films by William Wyler. The different subplots are all "

The good elements were isolated pleasures for me; they couldn't redeem the movie as a whole. But -

Gregg Toland's photography was great. There's some really sweet scenes of light and shadow, and some of his trademark deep shots with action in foreground and background.

The set is really impressive.

Claire Trevor and her one scene were fantastic. Bogie was good in that scene. I thought his performance varied between the early twi” read more
