Editorial Reviews

THE PUBLIC ENEMY (1931) A taut, realistic time capsule of the Prohibition Era, showcasing James Cagney's powerhouse breakthrough as a streetwise tough guy who rises high in the bootleg racket. THE ROARING TWENTIES (1939) Humphrey Bogart and Ida Lupino star in this soulful study of a gangster whose hard-boiled persona finds itself at war with his compassionate side – a side that will ultimately be his downfall. LITTLE CAESAR (1930) Loosely based on Al Capone! Edward G. Robinson rocketed to stardom as a pugnacious hoodlum who murderously rises to the top ranks of the underworld. SMART MONEY (1931) In their only screen teaming, Little Caesar's Edward G. Robinson leads the way and The Public Enemy's James Cagney rides shotgun in this brisk tale of barbers who go from cutting hair to cutting in on the gambling racket.

26 of 29 people found the following review helpful By Dr. James Gardner VINE VOICE on July 15, 2011
Format: DVD
The 1930s was the decade of the gangster film - it began with Edward G Robinson's "Little Caesar" and Jimmy Cagney's "Public Enemy" and ended with Cagney and Bogart in "The Roaring Twenties" (1939). So the inclusion of these 3 films in one collection is memorable.

"Smarty Money", OTOH, is quite forgettable. As a historical film, we have Edward G Robinson, James Cagney, and Boris Karloff at the very starts of their careers ("Frankenstein" would be released about the same time as "Public Enemy"), all together in the same scene. Other than this, however, the film tends to be tedious.

Most of these films were based on real characters. "Little Caesar" was based on Al Capone and "The Roaring Twenties" was based on real life bootlegger Larry Fay, who was shot to death in 1932 by a doorman at his nightclub.

Edward G. Robinson (1893-1973) was making quite a name for himself in early gangster films like "The Hole in the Wall" (1929), "Night Ride" (1930) and the Lon Chaney re-make "Outside the Law" (1930), and on Broadway playing Nick Scarsi, a Capone-like gangster in a play entitled "The Racket". When "Little Caesar" was being cast, director Mervyn LeRoy was looking for someone that resembled Capone, so Robinson got the nod. Robinson would go on to play in 30 gangster films in a career that included 89 feature films (only Bogart exceeded him with 32 out of 79).

Jimmy Cagney (1899-1986) was one of the biggest stars of the 30s, was nominated for an Oscar for his work in "Angels with Dirty Faces" in 1938 and won for his 1942 portrayal of George M Cohan "Yankee Doodle Dandy".

No swearing. No blood. No guts. No special effects. No color. Yet still a great movie!! And with this package, you don't just get one great movie, you get FOUR! Cagney, Robinson, Bogart and Harlow are wonderful as are the story lines. Be interesting to try it out on your kids or grand kids to get their reaction. Even if they're bored out of their minds due to the lack of noise, blood and special effects, I am confident YOU will enjoy all four movies just as much as I did!!

If you like movies not only because they're entertaining, but also because they're pieces of history, you must have this collection. You should not only see each movie, but also play it again listening the historian commentaries.

Love these movies. Fun to watch and I make it a once a month to watch these because there is always something new that I missed from the first time.
