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.

Nominated for three Academy Awards, the film comes to a chilling climax with Rocky on death-row facing the electric chair

Smarting from this insult, Don Alvarez conspires with the duplicitous Lord Wolfingham to stop Thorpe and smash the Sea Hawks: the small fleet of privateers that stands between England and King Philip of Spain's thirst for global domination!
