The Public Enemy
The Public Enemy is a 1931 American all-talking pre-Code gangster film produced and distributed by Warner Bros. The film was directed by William A. Wellman and stars James Cagney, Jean Harlow, Edward Woods, Donald Cook, Joan Blondell; the film relates the story of a young man's rise in the criminal underworld in prohibition-era urban America. The supporting players include Beryl Mercer, Murray Kinnell, Mae Clarke; the screenplay is based on an unpublished novel — Beer and Blood by two former newspapermen, John Bright and Kubec Glasmon — who had witnessed some of Al Capone's murderous gang rivalries in Chicago. As youngsters in 1900s Chicago, Irish-Americans Tom Powers and his lifelong friend Matt Doyle engage in petty theft, selling their loot to "Putty Nose". Putty Nose persuades them to join his gang on a fur warehouse robbery, assuring them he will take care of them if anything goes wrong; when Tom is startled by a stuffed bear, he shoots it, alerting the police, who kill gang member Larry Dalton.
Chased by a cop and Matt have to gun him down. However, when they go to Putty Nose for help, they find. Tom's straightlaced older brother Mike Powers fails, to talk Tom into giving up crime. Tom keeps his activities secret from his doting mother; when America enters World War I in 1917, Mike enlists in the Marines. In 1920, with Prohibition about to go into effect, Paddy Ryan recruits Tom and Matt as beer "salesmen" in his bootlegging business, he allies himself with noted gangster Samuel "Nails" Nathan. As the bootlegging business becomes more lucrative and Matt flaunt their wealth. Mike finds out that his brother's money comes not from politics, as Tom claims, but from bootlegging, declares that Tom's success is based on nothing more than "beer and blood". Tom retorts in disgust: "Your hands ain't so clean. You liked it. You didn't get them medals for holding hands with them Germans." Tom and Matt acquire girlfriends and Mamie respectively. Tom tires of Kitty, he drops her for Gwen Allen, a woman with a self-confessed weakness for bad men.
At a restaurant on the night of Matt's wedding reception to Mamie and Matt recognize Putty Nose and follow him home. Begging for his life, Putty plays a song on the piano that he had entertained Tom and Matt with when they were kids. Tom shoots him in the back. Tom gives his mother a large wad of money. Tom throws them in his brother's face. "Nails" Nathan dies in a horse riding accident, prompting Tom to shoot it. A rival gang headed by "Schemer" Burns takes advantage of the disarray resulting from Nathan's death, precipitating a gang war. Matt is gunned down in public, with Tom narrowly escaping the same fate. Furious, Tom takes it upon himself to single-handedly settle some of his men. Tom is wounded in the shootout, ends up in the hospital; when his mother and Matt's sister Molly come to see him, he reconciles with Mike and agrees to reform. However, Paddy warns Mike, his dead body is returned to the Powers home. The screenplay, written by Harvey F. Thew was based on a novel, never published called Beer and Blood, by John Bright and Kubec Glasmon.
Bright and Glasmon based their novel on actual people, having witnessed some of Al Capone's murderous gang rivalries in Chicago. Warner Bros. studio head Darryl F. Zanuck bought the rights to the novel and assigned director William A. Wellman to direct the film. Wellman, who had served in World War I like the brother of the main character, told Zanuck: "I'll bring you the toughest, most violent picture you did see". Edward Woods was cast in the lead role of Tom Powers and James Cagney was cast as Tom's best friend Matt Doyle, until director Wellman decided Cagney would be more effective in the part and switched the two actors but never reshot the sequences with the characters as children, why the child playing Cagney's role looks like Woods while the one playing Woods' role looks like Cagney. Another reason for the switch is that the sound technology used in The Public Enemy was superior to that used in earlier films, making it no longer imperative to have an actor in the lead role who had impeccable enunciation.
Louise Brooks was the original choice for Gwen Allen, a woman with self-confessed weakness for bad men. She refused the role, which went to Jean Harlow. Brooks' name was in studio records/casting call lists playing "Bess" in this movie, but she and her character did not appear. Brooks explained herself to Wellman by saying that she hated making pictures because she "hated Hollywood". In the opinion of Brooks's biographer Barry Paris, "turning down Public Enemy marked the real end of Louise Brooks's film career". Tom's first girlfriend Kitty was played by Mae Clarke, uncredited. Kitty is dropped off by Tom for Gwen after he pushes half a grapefruit into her face, the most famous scene in the movie. Joan Blondell played Matt's girlfriend, she had worked with Cagney in Sinners' Holiday and would work with him on two films which came out this year: God's Gift in Women and Blonde Crazy. Other films that they worked together on were The Crowd Roars, Footlight Parade an

In 2016, the series ranked first in Rolling Stone's list of the 100 greatest TV shows of all time. In March 2018, New Line Cinema announced that they have purchased a film detailing the Sopranos background story, set in the 1960s during the Newark riots. Titled The Many Saints of Newark, it is written by David Chase and Lawrence Konner and will be directed by Alan Taylor. David Chase had worked as a television producer for more than 20 years before creating The Sopranos.
He had been employed as a staff writer or producer for several television series, including Kolchak: The Night Stalker, The Rockford Files, I'll Fly Away, Northern Exposure. He had co-created the short-lived original series Almost Grown in 1988, he made his television directorial debut in 1986 with the "Enough Rope for Two" episode of Alfred Hitchcock Presents.

In 1996, he directed the television film The Rockford Files: Punishment and Crime, he served as showrunner for I'll Fly Northern Exposure in the 1990s. Chase won his first Emmy Award in 1978 for his work on The Rockford Files and his second for writing the 1980 television film Off the Minnesota Strip. By 1996, he was a coveted showrunner; the story of The Sopranos was conceived as a feature film about "a mobster in therapy having problems with his mother." Chase decided to adapt it into a television series. He signed a development deal in 1995 with production company Brillstein-Grey and wrote the original pilot script.
He drew from his personal life and his experiences growing up in New Jersey, has stated that he tried to "apply family dynamic to mobsters." For instance, the tumultuous relationship between series protagonist Tony Soprano and his mother Livia is based on Chase's relationship with his own mother. He was in psychotherapy at the time and modeled the character of Dr. Jennifer Melfi after his own psychiatrist. Chase had been fascinated by organized crime and the mafia from an early age, witnessing such people growing up, he was raised on classic gangster films, such as The Public Enemy, the crime series The Untouchables. The series is inspired by the Boiardo family, a prominent New Jersey organized crime family when Chase was growing up, on New Jersey's DeCavalcante family, he has mentioned American playwrights Arthur Miller and Tennessee Williams as influences on the show's writing, Italian director Federico Fellini as an important influence on the show's cinematic style. The series was named after high school friends of his.
Chase and producer Brad Grey pitched The Sopranos to several networks. They pitched the show to Chris Albrecht, president of HBO Original Programming, who decided to finance a pilot episode, shot in 1997. Chase directed it himself, they finished the pilot and showed it to HBO executives, but the show was put on hold for several months. During this time, Chase considered asking HBO for additional funding to shoot 45 more minutes of footage and release The Sopranos as a feature film. In December 1997, HBO decided to produce the series and ordered 12 more episodes for a 13-episode season; the show premiered on HBO on January 1999 with the pilot episode. The Sopranos was the second hour-long television drama series produced by HBO, the first being the prison drama Oz. North Jersey prosecutor and municipal judge Robert Baer filed a breach of contract lawsuit against Chase in Trenton, New Jersey federal court, alleging that he helped to create the show. Baer lost the suit, but he won a ruling that a jury should decide how much he should be paid for services as a location scout and story consultant.
Baer argued that he had introduced Chase to Tony Spirito and Thomas Koczur (a hom

An Emmy Award, or Emmy, is an American award that recognizes excellence in the television industry, is the equivalent of an Academy Award, the Tony Award, the Grammy Award. Because Emmys are given in various sectors of the American television industry, they are presented in different annual ceremonies held throughout the year; the two events that receive the most media coverage are the Primetime Emmy Awards and the Daytime Emmy Awards, which recognize outstanding work in American primetime and daytime entertainment programming, respectively. Other notable Emmy Award ceremonies are those honoring national sports programming, national news and documentary shows, national business and financial reporting, technological and engineering achievements in television, including the Primetime Engineering Emmy Awards. Regional Emmy Awards are presented throughout the country at various times through the year, recognizing excellence in local and statewide television. In addition, International Emmys are awarded for excellence in TV programming produced and aired outside the United States.
Three related but separate organizations present the Emmy Awards: the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, the International Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. Each is responsible for administering a particular set of Emmy ceremonies; the Los Angeles–based Academy of Television Arts & Sciences established the Emmy Award as part of an image-building and public relations opportunity. The first Emmy Awards ceremony took place on January 25, 1949, at the Hollywood Athletic Club, but to honor shows produced and aired locally in the Los Angeles area. Shirley Dinsdale has the distinction of receiving the first Emmy Award for Most Outstanding Television Personality, during that first awards ceremony; the term "Emmy" is a French alteration of the television crew slang term "Immy", the nickname for an "image orthicon", a camera tube used in TV production. In the 1950s, the ATAS expanded the Emmys into a national event, presenting the awards to shows aired nationwide on broadcast television.
In 1955, the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences was formed in New York City as a sister organization to serve members on the East Coast, help to supervise the Emmys. The NATAS established regional chapters throughout the United States, with each one developing their own local Emmy awards show for local programming; the ATAS still however maintained its separate regional ceremony honoring local programming in the Los Angeles Area. There was only one Emmy Awards ceremony held per year to honor shows nationally broadcast in the United States. In 1974, the first Daytime Emmy Awards ceremony was held to honor achievement in national daytime programming. Other area-specific Emmy Awards ceremonies soon followed; the International Emmy Awards, honoring television programs produced and aired outside the U. S. was established in the early 1970s. Meanwhile, all Emmys awarded prior to the emergence of these separate, area-specific ceremonies are listed along with the Primetime Emmy Awards in the ATAS's official records.
In 1977, due to various conflicts, the ATAS and the NATAS agreed to split ties. However, they agreed to share ownership of the Emmy statue and trademark, with each responsible for administering a specific set of award ceremonies.
