Dead End (1937)
Studio: Samuel Goldwyn
Producer: Samuel Goldwyn
Starring: Humphrey Bogart, Joel McCrea, Sylvia Sidney
Synopsis: Prototypical social-problem drama about a Manhattan slum in the 1930s. Hellman's engaging script, based on Kingsley's hit play, finds the neighborhood's residents struggling to get by, some choosing hard work, some taking the easier route of crime. When gangster Bogart starts to hang around his old haunts, he becomes an unwelcome influence on the street kids. Those kids became known as the "Dead End Kids" and, later, the Bowery Boys.
