good deep dark Cagney following up his brutal performance in 'white heat'
½ April 15, 2015
Almost as good as Cagney's White Heat he filmed a year prior. This one is more suspenseful and not as evenly paced maybe, but still a great!

Pretty standard Cagney fare, with him playing an ex-con trying to make his way in crime after busting out of prison. That said, it was never boring, followed a reasonable plot and some parts were really quite funny. Perfectly watchable. 7.25/10

High Octane Cagney At His Brilliant Best--Fast, Tough, and Unsentimental!!

More of a slow drama than anything else. I would've given it a lowere rating if James Cagney wasn't in it, but he can make anything worth a little more than the average actor...

KISS TOMORROW GOODBYE (1950)
July 2, 2010
This tough noir moves in fits and starts, but is propelled by a gleeful performance by James Cagney. He's a ruthless son of a bitch who drags everyone down to his level. Some good cinematography, crisp dialogue and fine supporting performances, especially Barbara Payton. Payton has a tragic biography, rife with abusive relationships, alcoholism, and prostitution, and ending with heart failure at age 39. She was quite a dish in her heyday, though. Not the most memorable, but quite solid and enjoyable.

I rented this film because of Barbara Payton, little did I know that James Cagney would be the main star. Cagney was outstanding in his role as a gangster, and Payton played his crime gal and did an excellent job. Its a early Black and White film that will hold your interest. We have crooked detectives, a pissed off girlfriend and a secret lover, everything that makes a good film. A 4 star film.

This is a good one. You're gonna want to watch this.

Cagney is the psychotic 51 year-old 'boy' who woos women by slapping them around. This is a good, lesser-known gangster picture - worth watching if it's on late night TV. The courtroom bookends seem unecessary, they can be forgiven but the film seems a bit dated for 1950 (compare it with Sunset Boulevard from the same year).

Good film. They dont make 'em like this anymore.

A tough and relentless noir based on the Horace McCoy novel of the same name, with James Cagney as a ruthless escaped convict on a violent rampage of robbery and murder. A raw, mean portrayal of violence by Cagney, and Barbara Payton delivers a great performance as Cagney's gullible girlfriend.

Decent crime story, if a little too far-fetched (especially were Cagney and the ladies are concerned). Not among his best, but nothing less than watchable.

Not as good as White Heat another Cagney as a gangster noir, but Kiss... still packs a wallop, Babara Payton turns in a fine performance as the good-hearted?if somewhat gullible?blonde who goes bad through her association with sadistic gangster ?Ralph Cotter played by Cagney

James Cagney as a real prick: He hits women and he rob banks and he kills in cold blood. What is there NOT to like about that! Cagney was born to portray sons of bitches. Throw a good prison break and a corrupt look at "the powers that be" in the mix and you got yourself a solid flm noir with a lot of moral twists and a strong political agenda. This is not the best from the period but damn, even less makes it a must-see.

Solid James Cagney vehicle. Good supporting cast, very interesting story. The production values are top notch. Great pace, the acting is excellent.
