Product Overview

WHITE HEAT (1949) “Made it, Ma! Top of the world!” Cagney’s Cody Jarrett – a psychotic thug devoted to his tough-as-nails mother – is the searing centerpiece of this blazing, fast-paced thriller.

CITY FOR CONQUEST (1940) Club fighter Cagney turns pro to bankroll his composer brother’s dream of writing the great New York City symphony. But life pulls the sidewalk out from under them in an intensely moving saga co-starring Ann Sheridan.

EACH DAWN I DIE (1939) Two of the screen’s famed tough guys – Cagney as a reporter framed for manslaughter and George Raft as a big-house racketeer – headline this prison movie that casts a reform-minded eye on the brutalizing effects of life in the slammer.

“G” MEN (1935) Four years after starring in The Public Enemy, Cagney waged on-screen war against the nation’s public enemies as a zealous FBI agent in a movie “fast, gutsy, as simplistic and powerful as a tabloid headline” (Time Out Film Guide).

Editors Note
Note A package compiled expressly for card-carrying fans of iconic Hollywood gangster sagas, this outing from the Turner Classic Movies network brings into a single box set four of the most beloved melodramas on the theme of organized crime, all starring the inimitable James Cagney. The collection begins with Anatole Litvak's 1940 CITY FOR CONQUEST, with Cagney as a man who gives everything he has to further the boxing career of his younger brother (Arthur Kennedy) and William Keighley's 1935 G-MEN, with Cagney as a hood who goes straight, joins the FBI, and uses his criminal knowledge to clean up the streets when his pal gets murdered by gangsters. The third feature in the set, 1939's EACH DAWN I DIE, stars Cagney as an innocent reporter who gets framed and sent to prison - where his path takes a dark turn thanks to an intersection with a hood played by George Raft. Finally, 1949's WHITE HEAT - arguably the most famous of early Hollywood gangster pictures - weaves overt Freudian themes into the tale of a psychopath (Cagney) who grapples with an unusually strong sense of maternal attachment, while trying to outwit a determined FBI agent played by Edmond O'Brien.
