Lowest Rated: 43% Johnny Come Lately (1943)

Birthday: Jul 17, 1899

Birthplace: New York, New York, USA

The American gangster film, and the output of Warner Bros. in its most influential decade, would be unimaginable without the contributions of James Cagney. One of talking pictures' first generation of actors, Cagney forever romanticized the figures of the criminal and the con artist with his jittery physical dynamism and breakneck staccato vocal patterns.
