Product Description

Based on the play {+Penny Arcade}, {#Sinner's Holiday} marked the film debut of {$James Cagney}. After seeing the performance on Broadway, {%Al Jolson} bought the rights to the play and sold it to {@Warner Bros.} under the agreement that both {$Cagney} and co-star {$Joan Blondell} reprise their stage roles for the screen. The story concerns an overprotective mother, {%Ma Delano} ({$Lucille LaVerne}), who runs a penny arcade in Coney Island and lives with her children: {%Harry} ({$James Cagney}), {%Joe} ({$Ray Gallagher}), and {%Jennie} ({$Evelyn Knapp}). {%Harry} works for a sideshow ran by liquor-dealing gangster {%Mitch McKane} ({$Warren B. Hymer}), who wants to date {Jennie}. {$Grant Withers} plays {%Angel}, {%Harry}'s co-worker and the hero that saves {%Jennie} from {%Mitch}'s advances. When {%Mitch} goes to jail, {%Harry} takes over his shady liquor business and keeps the extra money for himself, leading to a deadly gunfight. When he's accused of murder, {%Harry} begs his mother for protection and she frames {%Angel} with the weapon out of a bizarrely obsessive love for her son. {Cagney} would go on to play other tough-guy characters with overly loving mothers in his next film, {#The Public Enemy} ~ Andrea LeVasseur, Rovi
