  1. Happy 115th James Cagney! The Cagney's were 4 boys and 1 girl. James was the 2nd born. He worked and helped put his brothers through school. He also protected them by fighting for them. Great photo!
  2. TomHJ- I read many books on Cagney and I know in his later years[80's] he probably was unhappy most people are due to sickness, age ect.. I was talking about Cagney as a young man. He loved nature, life and had many hobbies. Many who knew Cagney enjoyed his company. Usually many people who drink alot and seem happy aren't. They drink to cover up their unhappiness. Cagney didn't drink, he enjoyed life and was not moody. Quiet at times and maybe faraway but that don't mean one is moody.
  3. I disagree about Cagney being moody and pesimistic. I never read that or heard that. He may have been quiet but he was optimistic and very funny. The men who liked to drink were really pesimistic that's why they drank[like Pat O'brien and Humphry Bogart]. Cagney liked to enjoy life and make the most of it, that's why he didn't drink alot.
  4. Cagney may have been quiet and soft-spoken in real life but he had a great sense of humor. Maybe he didn't show it on What's My Line but he showed it other times. Watch the AFI Awards. Cagney was very funny! So I disagree that he wasn't as funny as EGR!
  5. Tom, Terrible Joe Moran is a good film. Not depressing. Sure it was Cagney's last film and he is old, in a wheel chair but he still gave a great performance. Also, there are clips shown in the movie of Cagney in early films as a boxer and some of Cagney's paintings can be seen throughout the movie. A seller on ebay is selling an official release of the movie on dvd.Buy it and give it another chance. It deserves it. I met Mr. Cagney when he was 82 at the World Series [Yankees and Dodgers] at Yankees Stadium. My brother and I were a few seats away from him. When he came out the crowd went wild.
  6. March 30th, 28 years ago, we lost Mr. Cagney. It was Easter Sunday. What a loss!
  7. Mongo and Dargo, Great photos!! Mcqueen was so Handsome and so Cool!!
  8. Four Cagney movies are coming out on dvd this month. Here Comes the Navy, Winner Take All, The Oklahoma Kid and Johnny Come Lately[this one is also coming out on blu-ray.] Here Comes the Navy features the ship bombed at Pearl Harbor, The Arizona [six years before.] Some of the sailors in the movie died on the Arizona when it was bombed.
  9. How come no ANGELS WITH DIRTY FACES, the Cagney classic! I rather this be shown than ROARING TWENTIES. Don't get me wrong I am glad they are showing our three boys. It's just that Jim was so sexy in that film! He was sexy in all his early films! Must have been the red hair. I don't blame Merle Oberon for trying. Ok it's getting too hot here. I need a cold shower. Enjoy, Jim, Bogie and Ed!
  10. Bing as a young man was very handsome and what a voice! I met Kathryn and did a couple of events with her. She loved Bing. She said, "When he spoke and looked at you with those gorgeous blue eyes he mezmorized you."
  11. Tom, I love Cagney's movies from the 30's! Not only because he is young and handsome but because I love the type of movies that were made in the 30's. Fast, Funny, Short, Entertaining, Great Characters and Actors with a lot of personality! We don't see this today. I love Bing Crosby's movies from this time period too as well as Shirley Temple and many others. I also love Sherlock Holmes with Basil Rathbone as far as Mysteries go. I seem to favor The Golden Age of Hollywood. Getting back to the movie. Every movie doesn't have to be a deep intellectual story for it to be good. To me Hard To Hand
  12. Tom, Please don't think I am arguing with you. Maybe, I came across that way, I didn't mean to. I can't believe all the different stories about Tracey and BADMAN. And 2 stories combined all the others. And the same story went around for years about why Tracey didn't leave his wife. It said because he was a Catholic. Tracey said that wasn't the reason, that there was more to it than that. I think it was because he had a son that was deaf and needed him.
  13. Clore, Thanks! Does the story mention Cagney at all?
  14. Well, at least this story combines some of the others into it. He was hard to handle, sick from drinking and fired. Tom, I understand what you mean about facts and all the stories going around. As far as Ty Power, I read it on the internet and I know on something I watched recently[maybe it wasn't on Mr. Roberts dvd, I will have to watch that again, the specials on dvd]. It could have been on a special VHS version that someone gave me recently. But I know they said Ty Power was considered for the role first. I'll get back to you once I find the source. I remember telling my mom when I heard it
