The Public Enemy (Wisconsin / Warner Bros. Screenplays) by Tino Balio

<p><i>The Public Enemy</i>, a 1931 Warner Brothers gangster classic, is easily remembered as the movie in which James Cagney used Mae Clarkes nose as a grapefruit grinder. As Cagney recalls, it was just about the first time that a woman had been treated like a broad on the screen, instead of like a delicate flower.<br /> The ambivalence toward women is just one of the many stylistic contradictions that make<i>The Public Enemy</i>worth studying, not only for its intrinsic merits but also as a creative expression bending under the constraints of censorship.</p
