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.

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.

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.

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
