Get Up, Stand Tall, Put Your Back Up Against the W

To date White Heat remains the only instance in which my first encounter with an actor instantly turned me into fan. Typically for me I become a fan of a performer over a period of time and after seeing a number of their films. Not James Cagney though. The scene early during White Heat in which Cody Jarrett gets a headache and needs to be comforted by his mother, my instant reaction was, "I need t... read more

A classic gangster film!

White Heat was on my "to watch" list for quite a long time. When I finally got round to watching it, I wasn't disappointed with it at all. In all fairness, I wouldn't call myself a big fan of gangster films but this one gripped me from start to finish. Personally, I think that every single gangster film before the release of The Godfather in 1972 is underrated. None of them have received half as w... read more

“To date White Heat remains the only instance in which my first encounter with an actor instantly turned me into fan. Typically for me I become a fan of a performer over a period of time and after seeing a number of their films. Not James Cagney though. The scene early during White Heat in which Cody Jarrett gets a headache and needs to be comforted by his mother, my instant reaction was, "I need to watch any movie with this guy I can get my hands on".

I have no hesitation putting Cagney's performance as Cody Jarrett in my ten favourite movie performance of all time. At this point in my movie watching life I had never seen an actor so on fire, so electrifying. Like wow, you do not want to be stuck in elevator with this guy.

Boy is this movie fast paced. White Heat is one” read more

"Watched: 8.10 Olin menettänyt kiinnostukseni kokonaan katsoa James Cagneyn tyylisiä gangsterielokuvia, koska ne olivat vain samaa toistoa eri juonineen. Kuitenkin tämä oli hyvin poikkeuksellinen elokuva niin gangsteri- kuin Old Hollywood-elokuvanakin. Tässä oli poikkeuksellisen enemmän toimintaa, hyvin nerokkaasti kirjoitettuja kohtauksia, kuten tapahtumat vankilassa ja yllättävät hahmojen paljastumiset, mahtavasti kirjoitettu dialogi, jossa etenkin Cagneyn pistävät sitaatit saavat "

When 1 Scene is More Than Enough. (13 movies items)

"TOP OF THE WORLD! Is there anything else to be said? Probably everybody knows what I'm talking about, anyway: Cagney screams "Made it mom! Top of the world!" right before he dies in the final explosion...that gives me chills every single time! "

"18.06. DVD, 1st viewing DIRECTED BY Raoul Walsh A thrilling, entertaining film noir/gangster film with a spectacular performance by James Cagney as the psychopathic villain Cody Jarrett. Much reminiscent of Scarface in its depiction of a gangster leader suffering from a constantly growing paranoia. "

"Katsottu: 4.6.2012 Cagney on arvaamaton ja ilkeä mies. White Heat on paljon aikaansa edellä, kun ottaa huomioon sen rujon asenteen rikollisuutta kohtaan. Myös elokuvan kannalta keskeisessä roolissa oleva poliisin soluttautuminen rikollisliigan joukkoon on nerokas. Parhaat kohtaukset ajoittuvat siihen, kun kyseinen polle ja Cagney tutustuvat vankilassa. Oikeastaan koko vankilasegmentti on täydellinen. Sen vuoksi tämä on astetta parempi elokuva."
