Cagney and Bogart playing off one another is an absolute treat to watch. No matter who Cagney plays I always forget he's an actor playing a role. He's that good.

Plot and story wise there is little that sets 'The Roaring Twenties' apart from other Cagney prohibition gangster era flicks such as 'Public Enemy' and 'Angels With Dirty Faces' other than the fact that thanks to the newsre... read more

Excellent movie! James Cagney was incredible in this movie. Priscilla Lane was wonderful and beautiful as always. Loved Humphrey Bogart in the movie as well. Great movie explaining Prohibition.

1939 was such a classic, milestone year for film cinema. So many great films, 'The Wizard of Oz' and 'Gone With the Wind' even being masterpieces.

“1939 was such a classic, milestone year for film cinema. So many great films, 'The Wizard of Oz' and 'Gone With the Wind' even being masterpieces.

Also like the genre 'The Roaring Twenties' fits under.'The Roaring Twenties' did not disappoint. While it is quite rightly highly regarded today, considered by quite a number of people a genre classic and great representations of both Cagney and Bogart, it is a shame that it was over-shadowed by a lot of other films that year and doesn't get as much attention. 'The Roaring Twenties' may not quite be a film milestone in” read more
