Yankee Doodle Dandy

1 year, 9 months ago at Mar 6 19:43
Yankee Doodle Dandy is two solid hours of myth-making and grand entertainment, perhaps a little politically simplistic and overripe in its drama, but these things don’t take away any enjoyment for me. Everything – the politics, songs, performance modes – is old-fashioned, almost sweetly naïve, yet that is some of the magic and power of Yankee Doodle Dandy. It’ll make you believe in an Ame... read more

A musical portrait of composer/singer/dancer George M. Cohan. From his early days as a child-star in his family's vaudeville show up to the time of his comeback at which he received a medal from the president for his special contributions to the US, this is the life- story of George M. Cohan, who produced, directed, wrote and starred in his own musical shows for which he composed his famous songs.

It’ll make you believe in an America without limits, an America where the dreams are attainable, alive, and well.   Dubious as biography, it’s best to just view this as one of the more wildly entertaining films ever made, propelled by the energy of James Cagney.
