Reviews

A New York slum overlooked by luxury apartments highlights the rich/poor divide in a film which explores the question of whether deprived backgrounds create bad guys. Sylvia Sidney, Joel McCrea and Humphrey Bogart star, as do The Dead End Kids who went on en-masse to star in 'Angels with Dirty Faces' (1938) before disintegrating into three distinct groups: The Little Tough Guys, The Eastside Kids and The Bowery Boys.

Format: DVD
Dead End is a classic, but one that's pretty much been forgotten these days and is rarely revived on TV, let along the reissue circuit. It's a shame, because alongside the crusading social drama it's also one of the most strikingly designed and magnificently shot films of the Thirties thanks to Greg Toland's remarkable photography and Richard Day's marvellous set. Almost every shot in the film is extraordinarily imaginative - not just beautifully composed, but also absolutely right for the scene. And in William Wyler's hands, it still works pretty well as drama despite the plethora of stereotypes. Joel McRea, the most unjustly forgotten star of the 30s, makes the best of the worst of them as the idealistic but starving would-be architect, and the Dead End Kids when they still were kids and hadn't changed their screen names a half dozen times do display the early signs of all the irritating shtick that would turn them into one of the most painful ensembles of the 40s, but Sylvia Sidney's striking worker, Claire Trevor's hooker and Bogart's disillusioned gangster make the most of their opportunities. But Marjorie Main as Bogie's mom? That's a hard sell on the best of days!

Bogart and the Dead End Kids would cross the street to the Warners lot to co-star in Angels With Dirty Faces a couple of years later, but this one beats even that Cagney classic. Sadly no extras, but the DVD transfer is quite superb. Highly recommended.

23 of 24 people found the following review helpful By Amazon Customer TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 14 Nov. 2007
Format: DVD
William Wyler created something very special with this 1937 film depicting the confrontation of wealth and poverty in immediate post depression America.

The entire action takes place is a large enclosed square fronting onto the river with mansions on one side overlooking the river views, and poverty stricken run down tenements on the other.

In this broiling cauldron a gang of aimless youths fight and squabble, Hugh `baby face' (Humphrey Bogart) a notorious gangster disguised by plastic surgery looks on as he waits to reunite with his mother, the wealthy look down on the poor, Dave Connell (Joel McCrea) an architect that cannot find work paints railings, Drina Gordon (Sylvia Sydney) fights poverty and tries to keep her teenage brother out of trouble.

Nearly forgotten now the film was nominated for four Oscars and does not date even after seventy years.

Read Trevor Willsmer's excellent review and put this film on the top of your list.

Format: DVD
This filmed stage play (set in one location) has a slow burning fuse. It seems little is actually happening until the story explodes in the final act. Once you start paying attention, waiting for that moment is a tense and satisfying entertainment. Good performances all round and a great-looking transfer to DVD.
