Description

    Angels with Dirty Faces (Warner Brothers, 1938). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    This incredible picture, in which two childhood friends take very different paths in life, features one of James Cagney's very best roles. As Rocky Sullivan, Cagney plays a big shot gangster who becomes a local hero to a gang of youths (The Dead End Kids). Rocky's old friend, Father Jerry Connelly (Pat O'Brien), tries to convince Rocky to help him save the kids from a life of crime. The final scene, in which Rocky seems to turn yellow on his way to the electric chair - was Rocky really scared, or did he do it for the kids? - is a masterpiece of ambiguity. Rounding out the stellar cast is Humphrey Bogart, who co-stars as the crooked James Frazier, and Ann Sheridan, who plays Laury Ferguson, Rocky's angelic girlfriend. As one of Warner Brothers' top gangster films of the 1930s, paper from this title is considered extremely collectible. It is also exceedingly rare. Offered here is a highly desirable, and seldom-seen, one sheet. It had pinholes in the corners, fold wear with small chips at the fold lines, crossfold separation, a tear in the lower right corner, tears in the left and top borders, and missing paper in the lower left corner, the left border, the top left corner, and the top border. After expert professional restoration, however, this stunning poster looks as good as new. In eight years, we've only offered one other copy of this rare sheet, and it may be nearly another decade until another comes your way. Don't risk disappointment, bid on this one right away! Very Good+ on Linen.
