Underrated, more people need to see this.
Cagney and Bogart are both excellent, of course, but Gladys George also deserves attention for her performance as the faithful moll who sticks with Cagney's character until the bitter end, despite his love for a younger and less attainable woman.
A superb film. Cagney shines as usual but due to the role he is able to display more of his acting chops here, he's no cut and dry gangster in this one. Bogart plays a great role as well and having two titans of cinema squaring off against one another is pure gold.
