The charismatic James Cagney in the role that rightly made him a star! He plays a small-time hood who claws his way to the top, only to find it's further to fall. Mae Clarke co-stars (in the classic grapefruit-in-the-face scene) with Jean Harlow. Although the film went to great lengths not to glamourize criminal activity -€” providing a moralistic introduction and conclusion designed to ward off censorship - many powerful people felt otherwise, (largely due to Cagney's dynamic performance), and the film's notoriety helped install the more draconian Production Code of 1934.
