Description

    Angels with Dirty Faces (Warner Brothers, 1949). First Post-War Release Italian 2 - Fogli (39.5" X 55") Luigi Martinati Artwork.
    James Cagney, in an Academy Award nominated role, stars in this incredible picture about two childhood friends who each take a very different path in life. 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. Rounding out the fine cast is Humphrey Bogart, who co-stars as the crooked James Frazier, and Ann Sheridan, who plays Rocky's angelic girlfriend. As one of Warner Brothers' top gangster films of the 1930s, paper from this title is considered extremely collectible and exceedingly rare. This poster is for the first Italian release of the film. The spectacular design by Luigi Martinati captures this classic film and Cagney at his best. The poster displays nicely after touchup to the folds, pinholes in the borders, two chips in the top border, chips in the vertical fold near the center, and a chip in the left border. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
