The Public Enemy

1931 NR

Crime doesn't pay, as James Cagney learns in this vintage Warner Brothers gangster movie that's become a much-imitated classic of the genre. Cagney plays hot-headed Tom Powers, who's on the fast track running illegal hooch during Prohibition. Directed by William A. Wellman, the film is famous for its scene where a ticked-off Cagney smashes his breakfast grapefruit in Mae Clarke's face. Jean Harlow and Joan Blondell co-star.
