Who also perfected these type of characters was the great writer Damon Runyon. His stories inspired these movies full of gangsters, gamblers,  con men, and crooks:

LADY FOR A DAY

GUYS AND DOLLS

LEMON DROP KID

LITTLE MISS MARKER/SORROWFUL JONES

BUTCH MINDS THE BABY, etc

42nd STREET --

"Matrimony is baloney

She'll be wanting Alimony

In a year or so

Still they're gonna shuffle

Shuffle off to Buffalo

When she knows as much as we know

She'll be on her way to Reno

While he still has dough

She'll give him the shuffle

When they're back from Buffalo "
