The Doorway To HellDVD
Gritty early Warner mob movie successfully casts Lew Ayres against type as a ruthless Chicago racket czar who's ready to get out and enjoy a rich retirement, but the rivals who've kidnapped his idol-worshipping younger brother (Leon Janney) have other ideas. James Cagney, in his second film, receives a superlative showcase as Ayres' treacherous lieutenant; Archie Mayo directs. 78 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono.
