Angels With Dirty Faces
“C’mon out, Rocky. You haven’t got a chance!” 70 years of parodies haven’t dimmed the luster of this much-beloved Warners gangster saga that pretty much defined the crime movie as we knew it for a generation. Followed by a sequel, Angels Wash Their Faces, and countless programmers featuring the Dead End Kids as The East Side Kids, The Little Tough Guys and‚ The Bowery Boys– 89 movies for three different studios!
