Format: DVD
Warners has put six of its' best gangster flicks into this first volume of "Gangsters",and many still pack a mean wallop.
"The Public Enemy"(4 stars),referred still mistakenly by many today as just "Public Enemy",stars James Cagney as Tom Powers,his two girlfriends Mae Clarke as Kitty and Jean Harlow as Gwen,Ed Woods as his buddy Matt Doyle,his girlfriend Joan Blondell as Mamie,and others.The movie involves the story of Tom and Matt as two boys growing up on the mean streets of the big city and their first brushes as young kids with petty criminals and crime.As they grow up we see their graduation into the big time and their climb to success during prohibition as two of its' biggest hustlers in the illegal distribution of homemade booze.Of course crime doesn't pay and Tom gets his,in the end.Skillfully directed by William Wellman(Wings),this was Cagneys' breakthrough part and put him solidly on the path to major stardom in short order.Originally Woods had the Cagney role but they were reversed due to Cagney's powerful presence.This version has two minutes of restored footage re-inserted into it.It is definitely pre-code(/34)and is violent,with(still)quite shocking overt sexual moments and has the famous grapefruit in the kisser scene.
"Little Ceasar"(4 1/2 stars)released in August of /31,was Edward G.Robinson's breakthrough role also.Robsinson gives a rivetting performance as Enricco Bondello who as a petty thief longs to be the number one man and one day starts on the path to become so.It is a slow climb up the ladder as he steps on many toes,displaces bosses and makes many enemies.When you're at the top there is only one way to go and down and out Bondello goes in a hail of bullets;the only fitting end.

These are spectacular films and this collection is well worth the investment. You can never see movies like this too many times, they never really get old. There are plenty of extras supplied including commentary tracks, shorts, cartoons, news reels and other wonderful odds & ends.

Format: VHS Tape
This film marked one of the first starring roles for film legend Humphrey Bogart. Bogart plays a gangster, Duke Mangee, who with his gang, is on the run from the law. The film starts out when Leslie Howard wanders into a small desert gas station to get some food and runs into Bette Davis. They almost instantly take to each other. They discuss the book of poetry she is reading and he tells her he used to be a writer, but he hasn't written anything in a long time because he is uninspired. Davis, who has spent most of her life in the desert and wants desperatly to move to her birth place in France,finds the stranger very intriguing. They talk and she asks him if he wants to run away with her to France, but he has been there and doesn't want to go back. Then touble strikes when Howard catches a ride with a couple and they run into Bogart and his gang down the road. Bogart takes the couples car and leaves them all in the desert. Apparently he has picked Davis's gas station to rendezbous with his girl. Howard rushes back to tell Davis they are coming. Of coarse, they are already there. Bogart holds them hostage while he waits and drinks. Howard decides he is love with Davis and strikes an interesting deal with Bogart for her life. The film ends with a fatal shootout.
This movie was suppose to be serious, but time is catching up to it. Davis and Howard are good, but their affair is almost comic. Bogart totaly overacts as the tough guy, Duke. The rest of the cast is okay at best. The ending of the film is anticlimatic which pretty much sumarizes the whole film. This is a film that would interest young Davis and Bogart fans.

Warner Bros. Pictures presents "THE PETRIFIED FOREST" (1936) (82 min/B&W) (Fully Restored/Dolby Digitally Remastered) -- Starring Leslie Howard, Humphrey Bogart, Bette Davis, Dick Foran & Joe Sawyer

Directed by Archie Mayo

Burned-out British intellectual Alan Squier wanders into the desert service station/restaurant owned by Jason Maple. Alan finds himself an object of fascination for Jason's starry-eyed daughter, Gabrielle, who dreams of moving to France and establishing herself. Boze Hertzlinger, Gabrielle's bowser attendant boyfriend, grows jealous of Alan, but the penniless, dissipated Briton has no intention of settling down; in fact, as soon as he scores a ride from wealthy tourists Mr. and Mrs. Chisholm, he's on his way out of Gabrielle's life or so everyone thinks. Later that same day, Alan, Gabrielle, Jason, Boze, and Mr. and Mrs. Chisholm are huddled together in the same restaurant, held at gunpoint by Dillinger-like desperado Duke Mantee (Humphrey Bogart) and his gang.

When originally presented on Broadway, Robert E. Sherwood's The Petrified Forest starred Leslie Howard and Humphrey Bogart. Warner Bros. intended to cast Edward G. Robinson in Duke's role, only to be thwarted by Howard, who told the studio that he himself would drop out of the project if Bogart wasn't retained. The film proved to be just the break that Bogart needed; years later, he expressed his undying gratitude to Howard by naming his daughter Leslie Bogart.

Absolutely riveting!

Leslie Howard & Humphrey Bogart re-teamed a year later for the delightful "Stand-In" (1937).
