Not to be confused with ''[[HomeAlone Angels with Filthy Souls]]''. And besides also starring The Dead End Kids, is unrelated to the later film ''The Angels Wash Their Faces''.

* AmbiguousSituation: [[spoiler:Did Rocky really turn yellow, or was it just an act?]]
* AntiHero: Rocky.



* CoolGuns: Rocky's revolver.



** HumphreyBogart as the crooked lawyer, Frazier, is a more straight example.

* FatalFlaw: Rocky is loyal to a fault.



* HesitantSacrifice: A ''possible'' subversion.



* MisterSandmanSequence: The beginning of the film features the camera lingering on a newspaper with a period-distinguishing headline, before panning out at the beginning of a scene. They do this not once but ''twice'', although it's probably less to establish the period itself and more to show how much time Jimmy Cagney's character spends in prison. The first time they do it we see the city streets filled with horses pulling carriages, the second time we see the same street crammed with 30's-era automobiles.
* ShesAllGrownUp: Ann Sheridan's character when Cagney first sees her.

* MusicStories: Only a partial example. The fact that the boys are in the church choir is secondary to the plot, but it still evokes the concept of mentor figure trying to use musical activities as a good influence on troubled kids.
* ShesAllGrownUp: Ann Sheridan's character when Cagney Rocky first sees her.

* SoundOnlyDeath: [[spoiler:Rock's execution]].

* DoNotDoThisCoolThing: InUniverse example. In trying to denounce the gangster life, the film may have done itself a disservice by making Rocky Sullivan a [[LovableRogue very charismatic and likable character]] who makes being a 1930's gangster look awesome.
** [[{{Deconstruction}} Deconstructed.]] He makes being a gangster look so awesome, the Dead End Kids want to grow up to be just like him...which would lead to spending the rest of their lives in and out of reform school and prison and [[spoiler:an early death in the electric chair]].
