Angels with Dirty Faces, the classic 1938 Michael Curtiz (nominated for the Best Director Academy Award for this film) romantic crime murder thriller melodrama (in this movie, quintessential tough guy Cagney is a hero to the Dead End Kids, and at the end his childhood pal, now a priest, asks him to be a coward as he is led to the electric chair to help keep those kids from following in his footsteps; "A story... mighty with the clash of men! A picture... unforgettable in its greatness!"; "Sensational in it's dramatic impact!"; "From a Story by Rowland Brown") starring James Cagney (nominated for the Best Actor Academy Award for this film; as Rocky Sullivan), Pat O'Brien (as Father Jerry Connolly), The Dead End Kids (Leo Gorcey [as Bim], Billy Halop [as Soapy], Huntz Hall [as Crab], Bobby Jordan, Gabriel Dell, Bernard Punsly), Humphrey Bogart (as James Frazier), Ann Sheridan (as Laury Ferguson), George Bancroft, and Frankie Burke (as the young Rocky; he was an unknown 17 year-old newsboy when he was discovered to play the young James Cagney, because he had an uncanny resemblance to young James Cagney!)

If you know who did the art (if any), please let us know.
Important Added Info: Note that on this re-release half-sheet the image of Humphrey Bogart is given equal prominence to that of Cagney and O'Brien (when he wasn't pictured on the original posters), and that the image of him from "High Sierra" was used in place of the actual image of him from the movie! Also, the image of Ann Sheridan is definitely NOT from "Angels With Dirty Faces", but is probably from "Juke Girl"! Also note that this poster was machine folded at one time but has been laying flat for a long time and will be sent rolled in a tube.

Condition: good to very good. There is a small embossed stamp in the lower right corner of the poster. There is some tattering around the edges that has been repaired with tape from the back.
