Synopsis

A first-rate gangster film that also tackles some major social issues, this 1938 movie revolves around two childhood friends from a New York slum whose lives take radically different paths: Rocky becomes a tough-guy mobster, Jerry a charismatic priest. When some local slum kids fall under the spell of Rocky's outlaw glamour, Jerry's cleric intervenes to try to keep them on the straight and narrow. With its vivid street-level atmosphere, pacey direction and terrific performances, notably from a crackling Cagney, this is an example of the Hollywood studio system of the 1930s at its best.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
