White Heat may be the only instance when a first experience with an actor instantly turned me into a fan. After this I had to watch any James Cagney movie I could get my hand on.

White Heat is part of a long line of crime and gangster movies released by Warner Bros during the 30’s and 40’s, and also marked Cagney’s return to the studio after a number of years absent.

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

" - How ya doin', Parker? - It's stuffy in here, I need some air. - Oh, stuffy, huh? I'll give ya a little air. It's been a while since single character succeeded to evoke so many different emotions out of me, like Cody Jarret did. He is ruthless, cruel, psychotic and those traits terrifies me. Yet, his actions and remarks are so amusing that I couldn't help but like it and laugh at it. In between those two, I just felt sorry for the guy. A copper, a copper, how do you like that boys? A copper "

"There has never been a more fiery, sizzling apocalyptic ending for a film than the one in this Warner Bros.' late gangster film. In the film's final sequence, mother-fixated, tormented gangster Cody Jarrett (James Cagney) and his gang rob a huge chemical plant. One by one, the other members of his gang are killed during the ambush, but Jarrett rambles with berserk boasts to the last-remaining gang member Ryley: "They think they've got Cody Jarrett. They haven't got Cody Jarrett. You hear? They "
