Cagney is, as always, on the top of the world. When the movie starts out it just seems like your standard prison movie, but it draws you in. There is a scene when Cagney appears before the parole board. At first he has an outburst yelling he would get them one day. Then an instant later he breaks down into this heart-breaking apeal. I believe the only reason he didn't recieve an oscar for this role is because of all the other equally graet films that came out in 1939. This film kind of reminicent of Shawshank Redemption, if it had been made in black and white. I simply cannot recomend this movie enough. If only to see James Cagney and George Raft in their prime, its totally worth the rental price.
