Angels with Dirty Faces 02/01/22

The Warner Archive Collection

Perhaps James Cagney’s most popular gangster saga places one iconic scene after another and finishes with the actor’s most dramatic exit. The story has everything — Pat O’Brien’s pious priest, Ann Sheridan at her loveliest, Humphrey Bogart still snarling as a 2nd string creep — and ‘The Dead End Kids’ for a little bit of (screwy) worthy social comment. It looks incredible too, in a new restoration. On Blu-ray from The Warner Archive Collection.
