Coney Island penny arcade operator Ma Delano (Lucille La Verne) was always overly protective of her shiftless son Harry (James Cagney, in his film debut). But when she tries to cover for him after a lethal confrontation with his bootlegger boss (Warren Hymer), she just might bring tragedy down upon her entire brood. Long-sought career-launcher co-stars Joan Blondell, Grant Withers, Evalyn Knapp. 60 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono.
