    Yes, it's corny but I've loved this movie since I was a kid in the 50's and still do.

    Love that movie. See James Cagney sing and tap dance. Great performance.

    It turns out it's also available on Amazon Prime videos for free. I'll be enjoying it again.

    I watched it last Thursday too. It looked like James Cagney had a real stiff style of dancing, but then I read somewhere that he was imitating George M. Cohen's style.

    I seem to remember him as an old man at the end of the movie, listening to a couple sing Jeepers Creepers. Cagney made the same face my Father did when I played Led Zeppelin.
