VERY GOOD 1942 musical bio film of George M. Cohan "the man who owned Broadway" starring James Cagney (who does some great dancing) at age 43.

A very well done film that totally surprised me to find out Cagney could dance like that! The ra ra patriotism gets tiresome pretty fast, but luckily Curtiz’s fine direction and Cagney’s incomparably intense acting more than make up for it (though I still doubt I’ll be rewatching it any time soon).

AMAZING movie!! James Cagney sings and dances with ease and grace... based on true story of George M Cohan. True American CLASSIC! If you have not seen this before, trust me, you will not be disappointed! Also, be sure to watch the Bonus DVD. Michael J Fox tells a lot about Cagney and even gives more good movie titles. You will be amazed at what he tells you about one of our nation's most talented heroes! Absolutely MUST SEE! I have watched this every five years or so for 40 years now! Not the typical gangster role Cagney usually plays. Very patriotic! Wonderful plot. HIGHLY recommended, ENJOY!

One of the best musical stories ever. It was made 69 years ago and no movie of today can come close to how great this one is. All the young people/families need to see it.
