* AntiHero: Eddie is one the more sympathetic crooks that Creator/JamesCagney played.
* BadassInANiceSuit: This being a gangster film, Eddie sports one.



* DyingMomentOfAwesome: [spoiler:Eddie goes out in a blaze of glory having taken on George's gang]].
* FauxAffablyEvil: George pretends to be on Eddie's side the whole time, even though [[spoiler: he tries to have him killed.]]

* LoveTriangle

to:

* LoveTriangleLoveTriangle: Eddie, Jean and Lloyd. [[spoiler:Jean and Lloyd end up getting married during a TimeSkip.]]


Added DiffLines:

* PresentDayPast: The film came out in the late 30s. They didn't even try. Literally, it was a conscious decision not to recreate the actual look of the actual 20s. The two female leads sport some fashion elements of the '20s, but overall still look like they're from the '30s.


Added DiffLines:

* TragicHero: Eddie is determined to go straight but fate says otherwise.

Considered by many to be ''the'' definitive gangster picture. Not to be confused with the [[TheRoaringTwenties era]] of the same name (in which time he is set though).
