Angels with dirty faces by Michael Curtiz ( Visual )
34 editions published between 1938 and 2013 in English and Spanish and held by 1,047 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
James Cagney is Rocky Sullivan, a hoodlum who had always been on the wrong side of the law from an early age and was destined to spend his life in and out of jail. Rocky is effectively contrasted by his boyhood pal Jerry Connolly, who becomes the neighbourhood priest. What gives this 1938 movie its uniqueness is the fact that Cagney's no-good but dashing hoodlum is idolised by the youngsters on the block. Nominated for three Academy Awards, the film comes to a chilling climax with Rocky on death-row facing the electric chair

"G" men: It's the early days of the F.B.I. - federal agents working for the Department of Justice. Though they've got limited powers - they don't carry weapons and have to get local police approval for arrests - that doesn't stop fresh Law School grad Eddie Buchanan from joining up, and he encourages his former roommate James "Brick" Davis (James Cagney) to do so as well. But Davis wants to be an honest lawyer, not a shyster, despite his ties to mobster boss McKay, and he's intent on doing so, until Buchanan is gunned down trying to arrest career criminal Danny Leggett.
