Summary
  • Little Caesar: Edward G. Robinson embodies the classic screen gangster in this tale of the rise and fall of Enrico 'Little Caesar' Bandello, a hardened criminal with few attachments, fewer friends and no sense of diplomacy
  • The public enemy: James Cagney gives a powerful breakthrough performance as streetwise tough guy Tom Powers in this gritty, hard hitting representation of the criminal underworld during the Prohibition era
  • The petrified forest: A rundown diner bakes in the Arizona heat. Inside, fugitive killer Duke Mantee (Humphrey Bogart in a star-making performance) sweats out a manhunt, holding a disillusioned writer, a young artist and others hostage
  • White heat: As a psychotic thug devoted to his hard-boiled ma, James Cagney -- older but just as frightening as ever -- is at his most electrifying playing Cody Jarrett, a human time bomb struggling to reach the top of the world
