Gangsters are coming

Warner Home Entertainment will be putting out some classic gangster flicks later this spring. The Public Enemy, White Heat, Angels with Dirty Faces, Little Caesar, The Petrified Forest and The Roaring Twenties.

Public Enemy: James Cagney gives a tour-de-force performance in his tough-guy portrayal of a petty hoodlum who rises to big-time gangster.

White Heat: In his last role as a heartless gangster, James Cagney embarks on the prison break of a lifetime in this chilling tale that features one of the most riveting finales in movie history.

Angels With Dirty Faces: James Cagney and Humphrey Bogart star in this gritty but heartwarming story of a gangster who turns his life around after meeting some special kids

Little Caesar: Little Caesar is the tale of pugnacious Caesar Enrico Bandello, a hoodlum with a Chicago-sized chip on his shoulder, few attachments, fewer friends and no sense of underworld diplomacy.

The Petrified Forest: A rundown diner bakes in the Arizona heat. Inside, fugitive killer Duke Mantee sweats out a manhunt, holding disillusioned writer Alan Squier, young Gabby Maple and a handful of others hostage. As trapped as his captives, Mantee admits: “It looks like I’ll spend the rest of my life dead.”

The Roaring Twenties: Three World War I buddies clash in a vicious bootlegging racket. Based on a Mark Hellinger story.

All six titles arrive January 25th and carry a minimum advertised price of $14.95.
