Dead End


Humphrey Bogart stars as a mobster coming back to the slums of his childhood in NYC.

The location of this 1937 film was the East River just below the Queensboro Bridge where wealthy people live in amenity filled, luxurious apartments because of the picturesque views of the river, while the destitute and poor live nearby in the squalor of crowded, cockroach-infested tenements.

An architect trying to make an honest living identifies Bogart’s character despite his plastic surgery ¬†as an old childhood acquaintance who was a gang member. The architect kills Baby Face Martin who had been rejected by his Mom and disappointed by his ex girlfriend who had become a syphillis infected prostitute.
