You know, the period of World War I and the Roaring Twenties were really just about the same as today. You worked, and you made a living if you could, and you tired to make the best of things. For an actor or a dancer, it was no different then than today. It was a struggle.


[In the early 1960`s] "In this business you need enthusiasm. I don`t have enthusiasm for acting anymore. Acting is not the beginning and end of everything."


Cagney convinced decorated war hero, Audie Murphy to get into acting.


Cagney was Ranked #45 in Empire (UK) magazine`s "The Top 100 Movie Stars of All Time" list. [October 1997].

LITTLE KOJAK - While Clark Gable was hyped the `King of Hollywood,` James Cagneuy was the top-paid star. So I say Cagney was the real top `Royal.` (4 years ago)

MandyLovesVintage - Ah, What is there to say. James Cagney possesses SO much appeal, it`s ridiculous. He made it easy for you to be attracted to him. The versatility that he had as an actor. He could do anything, and you would believe him. He entices you, controls your emotions, as simple as switching on a light. Would it be weird if I said that I had a crush on him? Maybe, but I think it`s completely understandable. This man is HIGH UP on my list of being one of The Greats that this film industry has brought us. Cagney was a Top Class guy. Today, You can`t find anyone even CLOSE to Captivating. (5 years ago)
