Jimmy the Gent (Warner Brothers, 1934). In this 1934 classic, Jimmy the Gent, played by James Cagney, runs a less than straightforward if not downright dishonest missing-heir firm, sometimes even providing phoney heirs. He suffers a tinge of jealously when he takes a gander at the offices of a legitimate firm, where his former girlfriend played by Bette Davis has taken a job. Jimmy soon learns that the reputable organization’s boss (in the role Alan Dinehart) is more crooked than Jimmy ever was, but he can’t convince the girl of this fact. Using his own street smarts, Cagney exposes the honest heir tracer, and agrees to go straight if his girl will come back to him. (1hr 7 min)
