    Description

    Angels with Dirty Faces (Warner Brothers, 1938). Midget Window Card (8" X 14.25").
    This hard-hitting crime drama features all of Warner Brothers' top guns of the day: James Cagney, Humphrey Bogart, George Bancroft, and genius director Michael Curtiz. Growing up on the mean streets of New York, Rocky Sullivan (Cagney) is incarcerated early on for petty crimes and chooses the life of a gangster, becoming something of a local hero to the next generation of hoodlums, played here by the Dead End Kids -- Leo Gorcey, Billy Halop, and Huntz Hall. From his classic line "Whadda ya hear, whadda ya say?"' to his final scene of panicked crying as he is led to the electric chair, Cagney is simply riveting and deservedly earned his first Academy Award nomination for his performance. Pat O'Brien stars as Rocky's childhood friend who grows up to be a priest, tasked with saving the boys from the temptation of crime, and Ann Sheridan is the local girl-next-door. The very rare linen-finish midget window card offered here has been cleaned and pressed, with restoration to a sliver of missing paper in the top border, chips in the right side with small tears, bottom corner chips, two tears in the left border and one in the right. The touchup is superb and these issues are no longer apparent. With excellent portraits of the cast, this midget window card is a special item for collectors. Fine+.
