Movie Info

Flicker Hayes (James Cagney) has a score to settle with his old bank-robbing partners, Dan (Bradley Page) and Red (Ralf Harolde). They set him up to take the fall for their last job, and now Flicker, just out of prison, wants revenge. He ropes Dan and Red into one last job, then takes off for San Francisco after ratting them out to the police. Convinced he's safe, Flicker falls for a reformed prostitute (Joan Blondell), unaware that Dan has escaped the police and is on the hunt for him.

Audience Reviews for He Was Her Man

  • Oct 23, 2016
    I seem to like this film more than most, maybe because of the difference in tone it presents to the usual gangster fare. It's nice to see Joan Blondell in a more subdued role, and she pulls it off well, knowing her past taints her, off to marry an immigrant fisherman (Victor Jory) who will accept her anyway, but finding herself drawn to Cagney. It's nice to see the gravitas in her 'serious face'. Cagney is in the role of a safecracker who has double-crossed some guys and is on the run, not knowing that he's being closely tracked. Innocent to all of this is the family they're staying with, who lead simple but happy lives, and who look forward to their son's marriage to Blondell. I have to say, the mom (Sarah Padden) is a joy to watch as Cagney ingratiates himself to her. Cagney and Blondell are more low-key than their usual screen personas, and this is not movie with a lot of action, but there is real tension in both the story lines - whether Blondell will go forward with her wedding, and whether Cagney will survive. The depth of their feelings does come out in more than one tender scene, and in fact, all three of them - Blondell, Cagney, and Jory - are altruistic, adding a sweetness to the movie. It seems some are unhappy with the ending as well, but I thought it was quite good (and side note, wow on the glimpse we get of the low-cut dress). I also liked how it was shot on location in Monterey, California. Underrated and enjoyable to watch.

    Run of the mill programmer elevated somewhat by Cagney and Blondell.
