Editorial Reviews

James Francis Cagney, Jr. was born July 17, 1899 in New York City. He was an accomplished vaudeville performer (Cagney s first job as an entertainer was as a female dancer in a chorus line) and won an Oscar for Best Actor for his portrayal of a song-and-dance man in Yankee Doodle Dandy. Cagney, though, is best known for his portrayal of the tough gangster. Survived by his wife of 63 years, he passed away in March of 1986 in his home in Stanfordville, New York. This release features the four Cagney movies Great Guy, Something to Sing About, Blood on the Sun, and The Time of Your Life.

Disc 1 - GREAT GUY: (Drama, Crime, Mystery) The new investigator for the New York Department of Weights and Measures, pugnacious Johnny Cave, steps on the toes of influential merchants and gets increasing pressure, both political and strong-arm, to desist.

Disc 2 - SOMETHING TO SING ABOUT: (Comedy, Musical) A New York bandleader is offered a contract for film in Los Angeles. They move to California where his lack of desire to be a star is thought to be arrogance. Sick of Hollywood, he takes his wife on a cruise, but when they come back, he is indeed a superstar.

Disc 3 - BLOOD ON THE SUN: (Espionage) Nick Condon, a reporter working in Tokyo, refuses to toe the Japanese line on the expansionist policies of the anti-democratic Imperialist government. When it becomes clear he isn t going to cooperate, authorities decide to dispose of him.

Disc 4 - THE TIME OF YOUR LIFE: (Comedy, Drama) A curious assortment of regulars at a San Francisco dive bar orbits around a wealthy eccentric (James Cagney) who regularly holds court and fulfills his desire to see people live their dreams, which offer a series of events with mixed consequences.

The four films in this Synergy collection-- all of them lesser-known Cagney indies-- have been circulating in the public domain for years, none of them having been restored creditably by a studio or distributor of note (nor have they been here). Having acknowledged that, however, Synergy, which typically produces cheap made-on-demand DVD-Rs, does offer four fully mastered DVDs this time around, each containing a single title, in an attractively designed package. The transfer quality of the two Grand National pictures (1936's 'Great Guy' and 1937's 'Something to Sing About') is as fair as any of the grey-market versions I've owned; the print for 'Blood on the Sun' (William Cagney Prod./UA, 1945) is nearly as good as the impressive Image/Hal Roach release of 2000; and, disappointingly, 'The Time of Your Life' (WCP/UA, 1948) falls far short of the 1999 Roan edition, which remains the best (and most complete) available to date. While none of these movies stands out as a classic of its respective genre, each is well worth seeing as a showcase for Cagney's exceptional scene-stealing skills (my personal favorite is 'Great Guy'): even given somewhat flat material to work with he's simply electrifying to watch. Content combined earns around 3 1/2 stars; presentation/price 4-minus.
