James Cagney
Super Star & Best Actor Winner

Fast talking, fast dancing, gangster, entertainer, leading man, James Cagney's energetic style created a unique niche in the 1940s film world.

James Cagney's defining role would be as entertainer George M. Cohan in the popular YANKEE DOODLE DANDY. Notable films include: THE ROARING TWENTIES, THE STRAWBERRY BLONDE, WHITE HEAT, and MISTER ROBERTS.

Film fans were entranced by Cagney's machine gun-like delivery of lines, as well as his highly energized body movements. James Cagney was one of the rare superstars to retire while still quite popular, in order to focus on his private life out of the glare of the media spotlight. Much imitated, Cagney's unique style has never been equaled.
