"Once a song-and-dance man, always a song-and-dance man" You might think that would sum up Cagney's character but I was surprised to learn this was more in reference to his being a remarkable dancer and actually having taught it at one time, together with having been a semi-pro baseball player, amateur lightweight boxer, farmer, and of course an extraordinary actor. I was also humored to learn while reading this short biography that movie studios regularly shot at their actors with live rounds back in the days because blanks were considered too expensive (I didn't know that!)Cagney well deserves a lot of respect in my humble opinion and just want to mention how appropriate it would be to honor him at this time being it is his actual birth month. Excellent book!

This is a short introduction/summation to the life of a great and incredibly versatile American legend, James Cagney. From a wildly insane gangster, to a consummate song and dance man, and then to a wildly caffeinated Coca Cola executive, James Cagney could do it all, with style, professionalism, astounding talent, and humanity. This book is a brief but very well-written biography that makes me want to learn even more about the man -- and to re-watch some of his grand old movies. I always loved that Yankee Doodle Dandy, and this book reinforced that love.

always a big fan. I have read many times about Cagney. this held my attention but could have said more about his varied roles. calling Yankee.keep doodle dandy the only departure from gangster roles is incorrect. strawberry blonde, fighting 69th and man of a thousand faces are good examples.

I had a limited remembrance of James Cagney from his films, mostly his portrayals of hoodlums and assorted other less than desirable characters. One sometimes tends to stereotype actors as persons inclined to self indulgences from womanizing to excesses in many other ways. This biography of James Cagney was delightful in that it portrayed a very complex, humble, talented and loyal man, who lived the American Dream, "from rags to riches".

This is not a book but a very small print pamphlet that is over priced. There is probably only twenty or thirty pages in this so called book. It is being returned. Not advertised properly. No I would not purchase this again!

I thought it would reveal more personnel information than his growing into his career. Like what kind of farming did he do. What animals did he have and what parties did he have and go to. Was his marriage solid ? What kind of paintings did he do. The book just tells his struggle of making it during hard times not much after that in his life.

This is one of the best books about one of my favorite actors, it was very well written and covered many of his movies a lot that I have never seen but have on my list to look for.
