The Mayor of Hell

Sunday, Jan 30, 2011

Jimmy Cagney is a syndicate crook appointed to oversee a brutally chaotic reform school. He develops a kinship with its scrappy slum kids and tries to transform the school into a self-governing paradise. This vital pre-Code shocker builds to an incendiary finale; the film—like Cagney—bristles with energy.
