City FOR Conquest "ROCKY ROCKY" CAGNEY CAGNEY


Recommended Posts

:)

Just finished City of Conquest - I wonder if this inspired Rocky (doubtful)

I enjoyed this picture immensely, great story, good drama, it was more of a Noir to me than a Gangster movie, but thats just me

Cagney is just great...

My wife likes him in Yankee Doodle Dandy

It's been ages since I've seen this one. I saw it twice back in the early Eighties, once on TV and then once at the New Mayfield.

 

It was okay. I liked it better when I saw it on the big screen than when I saw it on TV. Cagney, I know, had Warner Brothers make the movie. He loved the novel but felt that the movie watered things down too much.

 

I don't know if I would call it noir. Cagney ends up resigned to his fate with a woman who cares about him. Perhaps I'd just call it a "tough guy" movie, like "They Drive By Night."
