Dead End


Directed by William Wyler with cinematography by Gregg Toland (Citizen Kane), this adaptation of Sidney Kingsley’s ‘socially concerned’ Broadway hit deals with the effect of the Great Depression on a Lower East Side Manhattan neighbourhood. Heavy handed, stagy and very of its time, Dead End features a terrific early performance from Humphrey Bogart, as gangster Baby Face Martin. His final defiant exit is unforgettable, worthy of a better film.
