They're not Playing Ragtime.

It seems this month that they are playing every great James Cagney movie except for my favorite, Ragtime. I know it's out of your library, but surely you could have played this one exception. Although I know that his early films a great, but me and a lot of other people think that Ragtime is his best. I hope that you can play it in the future.

Markfp2,

 

Actually, Ragtime is not Cagney's last film. In 1984, he starred in a TV movie, Terrible Joe Moran. He plays a wheelchair-bound ex-fighter who's estranged granddaughter re-enters his life looking for money. Cagney, frail and a pale immitation of his former self, doesn't do very much except watch film clips of his old fights; the movie used footage from City for Conquest, the classic Cagney film from 1940 where he played a boxer who fights only to win the love and respect of his girl, played by the terrific Ann Sheridan. Art Carney also co-stars in the 1984 TV movie. That film is the great Jimmy's swan song.
