Tonight I'm watching two gangster films starring James Cagney:

The Public Enemy and The Roaring Twenties.

Both of these movies are about the rise and fall of some gangsters.

The Roaring Twenties has a great soundtrack and I love the supporting role played by Gladys George.

James Cagney does such a superb job in both movies.

Who else is a fan of at least one of these films?

Both great movies and I couldn't agree more with this:
I love the supporting role played by Gladys George.

Gladys George is so underrated. Did anyone see her in the 1930s version of Madame X? What a performance!

Each of those  films has its own thread, where I posted my opinion  ;)

I'll check to see if you bumped up those threads. If you didn't, could you please do so?

By the way, who else liked the historical references to changes in the world after WWI in The Roaring Twenties?

I like how the guy doing the voiceover made some brief remarks about the start of Prohibition, the gangster activity during that time, the stock market crash (followed by poverty), etc.

I don't recall picking up on them when I watched the movie, so I guess a rewatch is in order! Thanks :)

You can find both titles easily in our Gangster Film Index http://www.fistful-of-leone.com/forums/index.php?topic=11382.0


And anytime you are looking for a film - even one that is not in an index - you can just type the film title into the search box  ;)
