Never Steal Anything Small (1959)

Crooked trade union leader Jake MacIllaney (James Cagney) will do just about anything to win the presidential election of longshoreman union Local 26.

When he encounters young upright attorney Dan Cabot (Roger Smith) and Cabot’s attractive wife, Linda (Shirley Jones), MacIllaney breaks up their marriage, pursues Linda, and pins a grand larceny rap on Dan.

And all set to music.
