That Gang Of Mine (1940)

3/5 (1)

“That Gang of Mine” is a 1940 American film directed by Joseph Santley and starring Leo Gorcey, Bobby Jordan, and Huntz Hall. The film is part of the popular “Dead End Kids” series of films that were popular in the late 1930s and early 1940s.

The story follows a group of young boys who live in a poor neighborhood in New York City. They are part of a gang called “The Little Tough Guys” and are constantly getting into trouble with the law. The gang’s leader, Danny (played by Leo Gorcey), is a tough streetwise kid who is fiercely loyal to his friends.

When the gang gets involved in a fight with a rival gang, Danny is arrested and sent to a reform school. While there, he meets a kind-hearted social worker named Mary (played by Marjorie Reynolds) who tries to help him turn his life around.

With Mary’s help, Danny begins to see that there is more to life than just being a tough guy on the streets. He starts to take his education seriously and even joins the school’s football team. But when his old gang comes to visit him at the reform school, Danny is torn between his loyalty to his friends and his desire to make a better life for himself.

In the end, Danny decides to leave the gang behind and start a new life with Mary’s help. The film ends with Danny graduating from the reform school and looking forward to a brighter future.

“That Gang of Mine” is a classic example of the “juvenile delinquent” films of the era and explores themes of loyalty, friendship, and redemption. The film was a box office success and helped launch the careers of many of its young actors.
