Yankee Doodle Dandy

5 years, 2 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.

(OK) Undeserved popularity for a biopic, much less interesting than many other by Warners. But in purposedly made click with patriotic wave of that time; and Cagney was a self convinced Cohan tapping his way trhough family and enterprise...

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.

"“When he dances, there’s something that comes out of him that’s just joyful, and infectious…. He tap-dances down that staircase without ever looking down: that you cannot look at and not grin.” - Sally Field “George M. Cohan was not keen to have a movie made about his life because there was so much he really didn’t want exposed. But they catered to him to get this because it was the spirit of him that they were really trying to capture, which they did…. James Cagney was truly on"
