'You ask me to turn yellow so those kids will think I'm no good...throw away the only thing I've got left. Nothing doing. You're asking too much...you wanna help those kids, you gotta think about some other way.'
Rocky Sullivan (James Cagney): [facing the electric chair] "No! I don't want to die! Oh, please! I don't want to die! Oh, please! Don't make me burn in hell. Oh, please let go of me! Please don't kill me! Oh, don't kill me, please!" -- Rocky acts like a coward to save the Dead End kids from a life of crime in the underworld. From Angels with Dirty Faces (1938) directed by Michael Curtiz
