Plot Summary
Summary This much-loved and much-acclaimed musical biography salutes the life and career of American composer and performer George M. Cohan.| James Cagney brilliantly essays the role of Cohan, a song-and-dance man who made his mark on the vaudeville stage at the young age of 13. Thereafter, he continued to rack up triumph after triumph -- until he became the first performer of the popular theater to win a Congressional Medal of Honor.| Along the way, he penned countless memorable tunes, including "Over There," "It's a Grand Old Flag," "Give My Regards to Broadway" and the film's rousing title number.

ReviewSource Chicago Sun-Times
Review ...[Cagney] doesn't dance so much as strut; he doesn't act so much as sell you his desire to entertain. In dialogue scenes, when other actors are talking, his eyes dart across their faces, silently urging them to pick up the energy; he's like Michael Jordan impatiently willing his co-stars to keep up with him. And when he's in full sail, as in Give My Regards to Broadway or Yankee Doodle Dandy, it's like regarding a force of nature.

Review ...It's from-the-heart entertainment and anyone who can whistle a tune, tap a toe or hum a bar of music will love it. For the musically deficient, it's still wonderful... This flawlessly produced and directed film was all Cagney...
