Starring JAMES CAGNEY

(1942, Michael Curtiz) Vaudeville sensation George M. Cohan is impersonating FDR onstage when he's summoned to the White House by the president himself and asked for his life story, and the flashbacks begin with Cohan's birth on the 4th of July... James Cagney trades his tough guy persona for tap shoes and belts out Broadway standards (including "The Yankee Doodle Boy" and"Give My Regards to Broadway") in his Oscar-winning portrayal of the legendary composer/lyricist/actor/singer/dancer. “Complete joy!  Cagney is a force of nature!” – Roger Ebert. Approx. 126 min. DCP.
