Description
This gritty 1931 film made James Cagney a star, though it forever typecast him as a tough guy for movie audiences. Based on the novel Beer and Blood, it follows the rise of a Prohibition-era hoodlum from his childhood to his violent death, and features several characters based on actual people. The Oscar-nominated film was edited for its 1941 re-release to conform to the Hays Code; this DVD presents the original version of the film, including the famous scene where Tom Powers (Cagney) smashes a grapefruit in his girlfriend's face. Here too is a program hosted by Leonard Maltin, including a newsreel, comedy short, and cartoon from the era, as well as theatrical trailers, the foreword added to the 1954 re-release, and a new featurette on the film.
