Dead End (1937) Rated NR

 A couple, a gangster, and a group of street kids converge on the streets of the New York slums. Based on a Broadway play by Sidney Kingsley. Starring Sylvia Sidney, Joel McCrea, Humphrey Bogart.

This is one of the best films of 1937. Humphrey Bogart is excellent as the gangster who comes home at the end of the day to meet up with his mother and girlfriend. The Dead End street kids reprise their roles from the play, which makes the movie all the more worthwhile to watch.  Those kids owned those roles. The film is a day-in-the-life tale of those living on the Dead End street, and it is worth the watch.
