Description
With performances by Cagney, Bogart, and Robinson, as well as molls and dolls like Ida Lupino, Jean Harlow, and Mae Clarke (the recipient of a grapefruit in the face from Cagney in 1931's The Public Enemy)—an Academy Award nominee for Best Writing, Original Story—these are some high-wattage flicks with some dirty, low-down action. Robinson is electrifying as the Macbeth-like gangster Rico in 1930's Little Caesar—another Oscar nominee for Best Writing, but for an adaptation—while Robinson and Cagney came together for the only time in the 1931 gambling saga Smart Money, also Oscar-nominated for Best Writing, Original Story. Fast forward to 1939, with the operatic blockbuster The Roaring Twenties, starring Cagney, Bogart, Priscilla Lane, and Gladys George, in which basically goodhearted Eddie Bartlett (Cagney) returns from WWI and can only find work as a bootlegger; Bogart plays his shady partner.

"Whether it's the first, or the last hurrah for a genre, Little Caesar, The Public Enemy, Smart Money, and The Roaring Twenties represent important moments in the evolution of crime cinema."—DVD Verdict
