as robert sklar notes: the final sequence recalls classic horror of the period. the gangster, in his final moment, embodies the mummy or frankenstein, he is an abomination.

Great cinematography and an excellent performance by James Cagney make for a solid gangster film.

Not my favorite gangster film. It plods along at a rather slow pace and the sound transfer for the DVD release is not the best which makes it difficult to hear at times. The early signs of Cagney's penchant for gangster flicks is certainly present but it is rather off, it hasn't been refined into the classic Cagney that the audience would later adore.

Not that entertaining and pretty easy to lose interest in it, Cagney is better in his gangster roles to come later on in his career.

Yes, Cagney was good, he mostly is :) And for a 1931 this movie is pretty good, but not that entertaining.

James Cagney, in citron amateur, is the father, in insolence and violence, of Malcolm McDowell in A Clockwork Orange.
