Synopsis / Plot
Dead End is the prototypical social-problem drama about a Manhattan slum in the 1930s. Lillian Hellman's engaging script, based on Sidney Kingsley's hit play, finds the neighborhood residents struggling to get by, some choosing hard work, some taking the easier route of crime. When a gangster starts to hang around his old haunts, he becomes an unwelcome influence on the street kids.
