    The Public Enemy, a 1931 Warner Brothers gangster classic, is easily remembered as the movie in which James Cagney used Mae Clarke's 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."
    The ambivalence toward women is just one of the many stylistic contradictions that make The Public Enemy worth studying, not only for its intrinsic merits but also as a creative expression bending under the constraints of censorship.

From the Back Cover:

The Public Enemy, a 1931 Warner Brothers gangster classic, is easily remembered as the movie in which James Cagney used Mae Clarke's 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.' As Henry Cohen points out in his introduction to the film script, however, the grapefruit scene is an uncommon touch of honesty in a film that, under the pressure of the Hays Office, swing awkwardly between typical Warners realism and sentimental accommodation.

About the Author:

Henry Cohen is the author of two other books and is the founder and editor of Criminal Justice History.
Tino Balio, Professor in the Department of Communication Arts at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, is the author of United Artists: The Company Built by the Stars, United Artists: The Company That Changed the Film Industry, and the editor of The American Film Industry as well as the 22 volume Wisconsin/Warner Bros.
