DescriptionAngels with Dirty Faces (Warner Brothers, 1938). Fine+. Autographed Linen Finish Midget Window Card (8" X 14").
James Cagney was nominated for an Academy Award for his portrayal of Rocky Sullivan in this classic tale of good vs. evil. Rocky grows up on the opposite side of the law from his boyhood friend (played by Pat O'Brien), who becomes a priest and tries to save the next generation of street boys (the "Dead End Kids"). Michael Curtiz directs this poignant and popular crime drama, which also stars a young Humphrey Bogart. This card is a very scarce and highly desirable item for many collectors, and this one has been autographed by James Cagney in the bottom right. Signs of handling include edge wear, some creasing, minor tears, and some chipping, especially in the imprint area. Fine+.
Estimate: $800 - $1,600.
