Description by OLDIES.com:
Curtiz's taut, suspenseful, yet suprisingly sensitive handling of the gritty urban morality play turned ANGELS WITH DIRTY FACES into the first unqualified masterpiece of his stunningly prolific career. The archetypal gangster thriller, brimming with the magnetism and explosive dramatic energy supplied by the three male leads, was nominated for three Academy Award Nominations: Best Director, Best Actor (Cagney), and Best Original Story.

IF THERE WAS ONE MOVIE THAT SYMBOLIZED HOW GREAT OF AN ACTOR CAGNEY WAS, THIS IS THE MOVIE! ROCKY SULLIVAN HAS BEEN A PART OF MY LIFE SINCE I WAS TEN YEARS OLD! WHAT DA YA HEAR +WHAT DA YA SAY -HEARING THOSE WORDS STILL TODAY ARE UNFORGETTABLE! THE MAIN REASON WHY CAGNEY IS MY ALLTIME FAVORITE ACTOR IS THAT HE CAN TAKE ANY ROLE AND MAKE IT HIS OWN! I KNOW BOYS TOWN WON THE OSCAR FOR BEST FILM IN 1938 BUT TO ME ANGELS WITH DIRTY FACES SHOULD OF WON! NOT EVERYBODY CAN BE FATHER FLANIGAN,BUT WE ALL HAVE A LITTLE OF ROCKY SULLIVAN IN ALL OF US!
before my father passed away 3years ago,he tried everywhere to get this movie for me and could not find it.
i first saw this film when i was twelve and since then it has been my all time favourite.
i still have not managed to buy it but will be getting round to it soon now that i know where to get it.
but for all you people who have not seen it ,then i would suggest you go get it,(trust me it will be money well spent).
jimmy plays in my oppinion his greatest role of all time,and the ending is something that must be seen to know what people are talking about,
