In 1935 Sidney Kingsley’s play about streetwise urban kids, Dead End, opened on Broadway featuring 14 adolescent actors. For two years on Broadway and then on tour, Kingsley’s play delivered its social commentary contrasting affluent neighborhoods and tenement slums on New York City’s East River. The film industry picked up the story and in 1937 released Dead End which spawned 23 more years of films and serials featuring the Dead End Kids and their offshoots, Little Tough Guys, East Side Kids and the Bowery Boys. This chronicle follows the street kids through the many assorted incarnations, shifting casts and studios. First the reader is introduced to how the original play and film came about. A cast list and analysis of each production follows. For the major players, the author provides a biography and filmography, and several of these entries include a tribute from a friend or family member. Brief biographical profiles are given for other actors. Sketches of the “Dead End” revivals of 1978 and 2005 follow.

The evolution of the Bowery Boys has more twists and turns then a boxing match. In 1937, they started out as the Dead End Kids, a group of young hooligans from the slums of New York's East River, appearing in several films for Warner Brothers. A year later, Universal borrowed most of the group and cast them in films and serials, under the names of the Little Tough Guys and the Dead End Kids and the Little Tough Guys. In 1939, the group went to Monogram and became the East Side Kids. Then, in 1946, it happened. The East Side Kids were revamped and The Bowery Boys were born. In time, their films evolved into full comedies, transforming Leo Gorcey (Slip) and Huntz Hall (Sach) into a memorable comedy duo. To celebrate this long-running, popular film series, the "Bowery Boys Movie Poster Book, Volume 1" presents, for the first time, rare, color posters from nearly 50 of their movies from the Dead End Kids to the Bowery Boys. Films represented in Volume 1 are: Angels in Disguise (1949) Angels with Dirty Faces (1938) Block Busters (1944) Bowery Blitzkrieg (1941) Bowery Bombshell (1946) Bowery Buckaroos (1947) Bowery Champs (1944) Bowery to Bagdad (1955) Call a Messenger (1939) Clancy Street Boys (1943) Clipped Wings (1949) Crashing Las Vegas (1956) Crime School (1938) Dead End (1937) Feudin' Fools (1952) Ghosts on the Loose (1943) Give Us Wings (1940) Hell's Kitchen (1939) Here Comes the Marines (1952) Hold That Baby (1949) Hold That Hypnotist (1957) Hold That Line (1952) Hot Shots (1956) In Fast Company (1946) In the Money (1958) Jail Busters (1955) Jinx Money (1948) Junior G-Men of the Air (1942) Little Tough Guy (1938) Little Tough guys in Society (1938) Looking for Danger (1957) Master Minds (1949) Mr. Muggs Ridges Again (1945) Mr. Wise Guy (1942) News Hounds (1947) On Dress Parade (1939) Private Eyes (1953) Sea Raiders (1941) The Bowery Boys Meet the Monsters (1954) The Made Me a Criminal (1939) Up in Smoke (1957) You're Not So Tough (1940)

No one exemplifies the angst of the Depression era street kid more than The Dead End Kids. They were the stars of Sidney Kingsley’s 1935 play, Dead End, and reprised their roles in Samuel Goldwyn’s 1937 Hollywood film version. The movie defined the theme of slum dramas for the juvenile rebellion films of subsequent decades. The Dead End Kids were Billy Halop, Huntz Hall, Bobby Jordan, Leo Gorcey, Gabriel Dell, and Bernard Punsly. The best of their films were the gangster movies where the boys collided with the likes of Humphrey Bogart in Dead End and Crime School, James Cagney in Angels with Dirty Faces and John Garfield in They Made Me a Criminal. They bandied about lightweights like Ronald Reagan in lackluster efforts like Hell’s Kitchen and Angels Wash Their Faces before being reformed by a military academy in On Dress Parade. Their original reign was short-lived, not because they ran out of steam but because they had to be toned down due to criticisms. It didn’t matter because The Dead End Kids mutated into several splinter groups that starred in various configurations of the original members for the next quarter century, carving out a unique niche in motion picture history. One of the uncharted tributaries of this history is the solo careers of the actors who played the Dead End Kids. There were careers of mixed blessings after the initial stardom and each member faced and dealt with the typecasting dilemma in different ways and various degrees of success. There was plenty of heartbreak and disappointment along a way that started with Dead End in 1935 and ended with Dr. Bernard Punsly’s death in 2004. Joseph Fusco's Beyond Dead End: The Solo Careers of The Dead End Kids chronicles a saga of mixed blessings, where each member faced and dealt with the typecasting dilemma in different ways and various degrees of success. 388 pages. Illustrated.

A series of movies that share images, characters, settings, plots, or themes, film cycles have been an industrial strategy since the beginning of cinema. While some have viewed them as "subgenres," mini-genres, or nascent film genres, Amanda Ann Klein argues that film cycles are an entity in their own right and a subject worthy of their own study. She posits that film cycles retain the marks of their historical, economic, and generic contexts and therefore can reveal much about the state of contemporary politics, prevalent social ideologies, aesthetic trends, popular desires, and anxieties. American Film Cycles presents a series of case studies of successful film cycles, including the melodramatic gangster films of the 1920s, the 1930s Dead End Kids cycle, the 1950s juvenile delinquent teenpic cycle, and the 1990s ghetto action cycle. Klein situates these films in several historical trajectories—the Progressive movement of the 1910s and 1920s, the beginnings of America's involvement in World War II, the "birth" of the teenager in the 1950s, and the drug and gangbanger crises of the early 1990s. She shows how filmmakers, audiences, film reviewers, advertisements, and cultural discourses interact with and have an impact on the film texts. Her findings illustrate the utility of the film cycle in broadening our understanding of established film genres, articulating and building upon beliefs about contemporary social problems, shaping and disseminating deviant subcultures, and exploiting and reflecting upon racial and political upheaval.

Teenage boys are wild about girls.When their hormones kick in at puberty, they can think of nothing else, and that"s the way it has always been-- right? Wrong. Before World War II, only sissies liked girls. Masculine, red-blooded, all-American boys were supposed to ignore girls until they were 18 or 19. Instead, parents, teachers, psychiatrists, and especially the mass media encouraged them to form passionate, intense, romantic bonds with each other. This book explores romantic relationships between teenage boys as they were portrayed before, during, and immediately after World War II. The author takes the reader through a rich landscape of media -- sci fi pulps, comics, adventure stories, tales of teen sleuths, boys' serial novels, wartime bestsellers, and movies populated by many types of male adolescents: Boys Next Door, Adventure Boys, Jungle Boys, and Lost Boys. In Hollywood movies, Boys Next Door like Jackie Cooper, Ronald Sinclair, and Jimmy Lydon were constantly falling in love, but not with girls. In serial novels, Jungle Boys like Bomba, Sorak, and Og Son of Fire swung through the trees to rescue teenage boys, not teenage girls. In comic strips and on the radio, Adventure Boys like Don Study, Jack Armstrong, and Tim Tyler formed lasting romantic partnerships with other boys or men. Lost Boys like Frankie Darro, Leo Gorcey, and Billy Halop starred in dozens of movies about pairs of poor urban teenagers sticking together, with never a girl in sight.
