James Cagney has always been one of my favorite actors. IMO, he is a better dancer than Astaire, Kelly, and anyone else. Here are some of my favorite roles he’s played:
Yankee Doodle Boy - James Cagney - YouTube (the greatest dance routine ever done–and he danced on his tip-toes before Michael Jackson)
James Cagney from “THAT YANKEE DOODLE DANDY” - YouTube (his last interview)
Great Dance Routine: James Cagney and Bob Hope - YouTube (Cagney & Bob Hope–unbelievable!!–never knew Hope could dance!)
James Cagney FAVORITE MOMENTS [FULL HD] - YouTube (Cagney’s greatest hits!)
He was married to the same woman for 64 years. (1922-1986)
It is interesting to note that despite Cagney’s stellar performances in so many films, he never once won an Oscar.
