This is the last time James Cagney appeared in a film as a Gangster, and in my opinion his last good film of his career. This movie was based on the life of real 1920’s singer Ruth Etting, who is portrayed very well by Doris Day. James Cagney puts this film out of all of his in the top 5; This is the third and final time James Cagney and Doris Day would appear together in a film. The first being The West Point Story, followed by Star Lift. This film was a rare box office hit for MGM, and much need profit for the studio.
