In this 1949 classic, James Cagney revisits the gangster genre that made him famous more than 15 years earlier in 1931’s The Public Enemy, and reclaims it entirely. This time he plays a psycho convict who escapes from prison and resumes his life of crime on the outside, with a woman (Virginia Mayo) by his side and his mother (Margaret Wycherly) always on his mind. “Made it, ma! Top o’ the world!” Another classic, proudly and correctly presented as one of “The Essentials.”
