20`s and 30`s gangster movies

4 posts in this topic

I have recently seen `Little Caesar`` , " Scarface", and "The Public Enemy". I really enjoyed all three and was hoping somebody could recommend some similar movies.

thanks!

Hi mackblyth, welcome to the forums. :)

 

I would recommend The Petrified Forest, The Roaring Twenties and Angels with Dirty Faces, for starters. You could probably watch most of James Cagney's filmography from the era and watch some of the best gangster movies, too (except The Oklahoma Kid and Yankee Doodle Dandy, of course).

That trio of films forms the foundation for all the movies to follow. not to mention giving the star actors in each of the films their big push into the A list of actors. Holly's suggestions are excellent followups.
