The legendary James Cagney gives a high-stepping, flag-waving, Oscar-winning performance in this musical extravaganza following the life of singer, dancer and songwriter George M. Cohan, a true Yankee Doodle Dandy!  Directed with gusto by Michael Curtiz (Casablanca), the film tells the musical rags-to-riches story of real-life early 20th century entertainment legend George M. Cohan, from his early days as a struggling vaudeville performer to his super-stardom on Broadway, along the way composing the songs that defined his generation and help lift the spirits of a nation during wartime.  Featuring spectacularly buoyant production numbers and a bevy of beloved, Cohan-penned tunes including Over There, Grand Old Flag, Give My Regards to Broadway and the unforgettable title tune, Yankee Doodle Dandy is driven by the sensationally charismatic James Cagney, who here traded his tough-guy gangster personae established in such classics as Angels with Dirty Faces and The Public Enemy for that of an energetic song-and-dance man, playing an ebullient, over-confident hoofer speaking from the side of his mouth and successfully grabbing for the American Dream.  Released just after the 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor, Yankee Doodle Dandy, nominated for three Academy Awards, became a blockbuster hit, boosting the country’s morale and sending audiences out of theaters with a spring in their step and a song in their hearts. (Dir. by Michael Curtiz, 1942, USA, 126 mins., Not Rated)
