This TCM Greatest Classic Films Set includes these four great films:The Little GiantWindy City bootlegger Robinson sets out for a new life when Prohibition ends.

They are Bugs Fenner (Humphrey Bogart) and other mobsters whose illicit rackets will be smashed by undercover cop Johnny Blake (Edward G. Robinson).Kid GalahadRobinson and Bogart play rival fight promoters and Bette Davis is the moll who has eyes for brawlingbellhop Wayne Morris in this "best of '30s boxing movies" (David Shipman, The Story of Cinema).Larceny, Inc.Robinson turns his mobster persona on its head in a delicious tale of ex-jailbirds who run a luggage shop as a front while tunneling into the bank next door. Broderick Crawford, Jane Wyman and Anthony Quinn costar.
With Prohibition's end, ex-bootlegger Edward G. Robinson decides to enter the world of high society in the gangster comedy "The Little Giant" (1933), co-starring Mary Astor, Russell Hopton. Ex-cop Robinson is hired as an "advisor" by mob boss Barton MacLane, but gunman Humphrey Bogart doesn't him, in "Bullets or Ballots" (1936).

Bette Davis, Wayne Morris, Bogart co-star.
