  1. Aardsy's rating of the film Yankee Doodle Dandy

    Cagney is a force of a nature among a lot of cliches.

  2. Blumes's rating of the film Yankee Doodle Dandy

    "Youth needs confidence."

  3. SpacePirate's rating of the film Yankee Doodle Dandy

    Cagney shines, great songs, etc. Do yourself a favor and watch it next time its on TCM or something. They show it frequently. MUBI needs to as well!

  4. RoRoRoro's rating of the film Yankee Doodle Dandy

  5. Dave's rating of the film Yankee Doodle Dandy

    Everyone rightfully points out Cagney's bravura performance, but Curtiz's direction is nearly flawless. Say what you want about Curtiz's auteurist credentials, but his direction in this film as is about as good as anything I've seen in the great decade of 1940s cinema.

  6. Arcanus's rating of the film Yankee Doodle Dandy

    Cagney's dance up the wall is wonderful. He was the world's best midget dancer.

  7. Owen Sound's rating of the film Yankee Doodle Dandy

    James Cagney in a true star performance, the kind that is absolutely nonexistent in film today.

  8. Adam Legge's rating of the film Yankee Doodle Dandy

    An undeniably pleasant movie. James Cagney made the film for me.

  10. alixrajabi's rating of the film Yankee Doodle Dandy

    Seeing Cagney bust those moves were fucking awesome especially dressed like an old man

  11. Byron Brubaker's rating of the film Yankee Doodle Dandy

    That gangster James Cagney can sing and dance!! I enjoyed this biopic very much especially for Cagney's against type performance. He is very talented.

  12. Johnny DuBiel's rating of the film Yankee Doodle Dandy

    Heavy on histrionics, not to mention factually inaccurate, but damned if it isn't highly entertaining! For once the Oscars got it right by (finally) awarding Cagney for one of his finest performances! His turn as George Cohan is full of emotion and gravitas as well as being on the money physically.
