Description by OLDIES.com:

Jackie Cooper is tenement kid Chuck Brennan, leader of a gang of young toughs in the slums. The boys heckle the cops and fight rival street gangs. Chuck falls in love with Nora, a bright girl who is willing to put her scholarship aside to care for her dying mother. Seeking to make Nora's life better, Chuck becomes the right hand man of gangster Blackie Davis. Soon Davis has the impressionable boy accustomed to quick and easy money. Chuck takes greater and greater risks until he finds himself at the wrong end of a gun on a heist gone bad.

Starring "Our Gang" alumnus Jackie Cooper, Monogram Pictures production of Boy of the Streets is a poverty row panorama of life among the poor reminiscent of Street Scene (1931) and Dead End (1937). Featuring indelible work by character actors Matty Fain (as gangster Blackie Davis) and Marjorie Main (as Chuck's mother), Boy of the Streets is a gripping and inspiring yarn of a young man seeking his path in an unjust world.

Product Description:

Child star Jackie Cooper plays the ringleader of a gang of hoodlums on the Lower East Side of New York, bragging that his "big shot" dad will get him out of anything. A powerful portrait of urban decay by Hollywood maverick Rowland Brown who was responsible for the script but yanked off directing.
