Product Description:

Jimmy Cagney stars in this surprisingly progressive story of a teenage gang sent to reform school. There, the kids butt heads with their cruel warden, Thompson, and suffer at the hands of the corrupt institution. But when a mob figure, played by Cagney, is appointed Deputy Commissioner, he helps turn the system upside down. Now the kids are running things, and Thompson will have to pay! A unique film for the time, MAYOR OF HELL was heavily influenced by New Deal-era rhetoric.

Rating 5.0 CAGNEYS BIGGEST SLEEPER! Movie Lover: from BRONX, NY US -- August, 8, 2014

THE MAYOR OF HELL IS ONE OF JAMES CAGNEY BEST FILMS! JIMMY DELIVERS THE GOODIES IN THIS FILM AS HIS NATURAL STYLE OF ACTING TAKES OVER THE FILM! MADE IN 1933, CAGNEY, AT THIS TIME, WAS KNOWN FOR HIS GANGSTER ROLES BUT FOR THIS MOVIE-HE ACTUALLY PLAYS A PRINCIPAL! IMAGINE THAT! THIS MOVIE WAS LATER REMADE AS CRIME SCHOOL WITH HUMPHREY BOGART BUT IT PALES IN COMPARISON TO THE MAYOR OF HELL! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! CAGNEY IS THE BEST!
