Angels with Dirty Faces (1938)
Saturday 10th February 2024
Off-screen pals James Cagney and Pat O'Brien teamed up for the sixth time in the enduring gangster classic Angels with Dirty Faces, released on Blu-ray 26th February 2024 from Warner Home Video.
Cagney's Rocky Sullivan is a charismatic ghetto tough whose underworld rise makes him a hero to a gang of slum punks. O'Brien is Father Connolly, the boyhood chum-turned-priest who vows to end Rocky's influence.
Other ace talents join them: Humphrey Bogart as a scheming lawyer, Ann Sheridan as Rocky's hard-edged girlfriend and the Dead End Kids as worshipful street urchins, all ably directed by Michael Curtiz (Casablanca).
The 1938 New York Film Critics Best Actor Award came Cagney's way, as well as one of the film's three Oscar nominations. Watch the chilling death-row finale and you'll know why.
