One of the best old gangster movies I've seen. Don't be fooled by the cover- this film is more screwball comedy, fast-talking, and sinister-plotting, and although there are a good number of fight scenes, there are just as many club musical numbers. With big names like James Cagney and Humphrey Bogart, one expects greatness. But this was made before Bogie became big, and at the end of a long string of Cagney's gangster roles, so both actors really have fun with it. Written by a famous inside columnist at the time, and interspersed with newsreels and narration, this film is strangely nostalgic about an era barely twenty years before.

One of the greats! Cagney (the average guy) and Bogart (the bad guy) are brilliant together in this dramatic tale of prohibition bootlegging. The last scene is unforgettable!
