James Cagney gets top billing as the leader of a gang making and distributing liquor during Prohibition and Humphrey Bogart gets second page billing as his partner. They do quite well up to the great stock market crash of 1929, when some of our protagonists become winners while others dive to the bottom as losers. This is one of the best of the James Cagney crime dramas. Just a notch below Cagney’s crime masterpiece White Heat, which would come ten years later.

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!
