Academy Award winner James Cagney delivers a tour-de-force performance as a murderously psychotic criminal mastermind with an overpowering mother complex in this classic crime thriller which features one of the most riveting finales in movie history. While in prison, Cody Jarrett (Cagney) befriends an undercover cop (Edmund O'Brien) posing as a young thug—appearing to idolize the hard-bitten gangster. Released from prison, Jarrett plots a seemingly perfect heist, unaware that his partners plan to kill him and that his right-hand man is working for the police. (1949, 114 mins)
