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

3 silent classics by Josef von Sternberg( Visual )

4 editions published in 2010 in No Linguistic content and English and held by 214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Vienna-born, New York-raised Josef von Sternberg directed some of the most influential, stylish dramas ever to come out of Hollywood. Though best known for his star-making collaborations with Marlene Dietrich, von Sternberg began his career during the final years of the silent era, dazzling audiences and critics with his film's dark visions and innovative cinematography. The titles in this collection, made on the cusp of the sound age, are three of von Sternberg's greatest works, gritty evocations of gangster life (Underworld), the Russian Revolution (The Last Command), and working-class desperation (The Docks of New York) made into shadowy movie spectacle. Criterion is proud to present these long unavailable classics of American cinema, each with two musical scores."--Container
