Synopsis:

"90 DRAMA PACKED-MINUTES OF THE MOST EXCITING ENTERTAINMENT EVER FILMED!"

Rocky Sullivan (James Cagney) and Jerry Connolly (Pat O'Brien) were tough kids who grew up together in the toughest part of New York --- Hell's Kitchen. Early on, Rocky gets sent to reform school, where he learns how to be a first class criminal. Jerry, who had escaped from the law, goes straight and becomes a priest.
As adults, they reunite in the old neighborhood: Jerry works with the kids who, like he and Rocky, could end up on either side of the law. Rocky has returned looking for a safe place to stay till he can get back into his old racketeering organization -- something that his old partner James Frasier(Humphrey Bogart) isn't anxious to have happen. Lots of rapid fire wisecracks, roughhousing and gunfire ensues.
