You should watch this movie. That is all.


Just said that to Heidi. Looking forward to it.


One of my favorite movies by one of my favorite actors who by most accounts was a decent man (married to the same woman for 62 years!) who stayed out of the cesspool of Hollywood. Cagney was an absolute force in this film.

I might suggest another underrated film that features Cagney at his best (an made just before Yankee Doodle Dandy) - The Strawberry Blonde. Great ensemble cast and great themes.

One quibble with the review - it’s Co-han (as in "hand). I’ve heard the accent on either syllable. In any event, George M was not kosher but Catholic.


Darn it, I thought about that and thought we were getting it right.
