The story begins in the year 1935. A pet shop owner catches a young boy shoplifting a puppy. To discourage the kid from a life of crime, the owner tells a story via a flashback. In 1910 Johnny Kelly is a poor but honest newsboy in New York City. Johnny’s mother, Ma Kelly, needs an operation they cannot afford. Since the execution of Johnny’s criminal father, Ma has supported Johnny and his younger brother, Tommy, who is fascinated by the law. Johnny gets into a fight with a boy named Danny Vermin, which attracts the notice of local crime boss Jocko Dundee, who offers Johnny a job. Seeing no honest way to earn the money for his mother’s operation, Johnny agrees, even though it would break his mother’s heart. He helps rob a rival nightclub belonging to Roman Moronie. Moronie, a malapropist of swearwords, claims he never forgets a “fargin'” face. When Jocko asks Johnny his name, he replies Johnny Dangerously.

Years pass. With Ma’s continuing medical problems, Johnny goes to work for Dundee full-time. Everyone knows that Kelly is really Johnny Dangerously, except for Ma and Tommy, who think he is a nightclub owner. Similarly, the gang knows nothing of Johnny’s mother and brother. Johnny comes to Dundee’s headquarters to find he has taken on two new gang members: Danny Vermin and his sidekick Dutch. Danny has lived up to his potential and become a total scumbag, with a taste for using opera audiences as shooting galleries with his .88 Magnum pistol. As the two gangs continue to war, Johnny falls for Lil Sheridan, a young showgirl new to the big city. Eventually, Johnny becomes the boss of the Dundee gang and negotiates a truce with Moronie.
