Description
White Heat (1949) is the all-time classic here, with Cagney playing ruthless, maniacal crime boss Cody Jarrett. Virginia Mayo is his two-timing girlfriend and Margaret Wycherly is his mother ("Top of the world, Ma!"), who takes over the gang for a spell while he's in jail. Before White Heat, Cagney starred in 1935's G-Men (the first FBI movie, and an early procedural), 1939's Each Dawn I Die (a prison flick in which he shares the bill with the great George Raft), and 1940's City for Conquest (in which he plays a truck driver turned boxer). The plentiful extras include cartoons, shorts, newsreels, trailers, and commentaries.

"Cagney was known for his portrayal of gangsters, but he's not just a cardboard mug. It's a good thing, since White Heat is the only film ... where he plays the sort of gangster he's associated with. Each Dawn I Die plays with that image a bit, putting him in prison on a bum rap, and G-Men goes even further, making him a gangbuster. City of Conquest isn't even a gangster film, even though Elia Kazan makes an acting appearance as a shady pal of Cagney's boxer."óDVD Verdict

"One thing James Cagney wasn't was the typical Hollywood star. He wasn't strong and silent or tall and dark. His tough guy wasn't just tough; he was all attitude."óTurner Classic Movies profile
