Description

Angels with Dirty Faces (Warner Brothers, 1949). First Release Italian 2 - Foglio (39" X 55").
James Cagney, in an Academy Award nominated role, stars in this incredible picture about two childhood friends who each take a very different path in life. As Rocky Sullivan, Cagney plays a big shot gangster who becomes a local hero to a gang of youths (the Dead End Kids). Rocky's old friend, Father Jerry Connelly (Pat O'Brien), tries to convince Rocky to help him save the kids from a life of crime. Rounding out the fine cast is Humphrey Bogart, who co-stars as the crooked James Frazier, and Ann Sheridan, who plays Laury Ferguson, Rocky's angelic girlfriend. As one of Warner Brothers' top gangster films of the 1930s, paper from this title is considered extremely collectible and exceedingly rare. This poster is for the first Italian release of the film. The spectacular design by Luigi Martinati captures this classic film and Cagney at his best. The poster has been restored to address minor wear, including pinholes in the borders, fold wear, and a chip in the top border. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
