Couldn't be more outdated.
William Wyler's screen version of this juvenile delinquency drama features the Dead End Kids and boasts excellent performances from Bogart as a criminal before he became star and Joel McCrea as the decent guy.
...worth a look, especially for fans of Bogart...
It's still a compelling film, and it features a novelty: Humphrey Bogart's name isn't at the top of the credits.
Intelligent, generally effective film version of the Kingsley play.
Dated but excellently acted drama.
I recently picked up a copy of Dead End from a market stall and was pleased I did.
A gangster, "Baby Face" returns to New York's Lower East Side, where he grew up. He goes to visit his mum and ex girlfriend, but they are not pleased to see him. He then gets involved in a shootout which claims his life. We also see what the Dead End Kids get up to and they course plenty of trouble. Two of the residents also fall in love with each other.
This movie gives you an idea on what life was like in this period in New York's poorer Lower East Side and the rich peoples' apartments are overlooking this slum area.
The cast includes an excellent performance from Humphrey Bogart as Baby Face and is joined by Sylvia Sydney (Sabotage), western star Joel McCrea, Claire Trevor (Key Largo, which also starred Bogie), Wendy Barrie and a brief appearance by Ward Bond.
Dead End is worth watching, a good way to spend 90 minutes one afternoon or evening.
pretty melodramatic. supporting characters are much better than the main story here. ma kettle is one cold hearted bitch, the punk kids are fun and an extra half star for claire trevor :)
Depression Era Melodrame is boring at best. Bogart, when he's actually on the screen, chews the scenery a bit.
