Overview

A package compiled expressly for card-carrying fans of iconic Hollywood gangster sagas, this outing from the Turner Classic Movies network brings into a single box set four of the most beloved melodramas on the theme of organized crime, all starring the inimitable James Cagney. The collection begins with Anatole Litvak's 1940 City for Conquest, with Cagney as a man who gives everything he has to further the boxing career of his younger brother (Arthur Kennedy) and William Keighley's 1935 G-Men, with Cagney as a hood who goes straight, joins the FBI, and uses his criminal knowledge to clean up the streets when his pal gets murdered by gangsters. The third feature in the set, 1939's Each Dawn I Die, stars Cagney as an innocent reporter who gets framed and sent to prison - where his path takes a dark turn thanks to an intersection with a hood played by George Raft. Finally, 1949's White Heat - arguably the most famous of early Hollywood gangster pictures - weaves overt Freudian themes into the tale of a psychopath (Cagney) who grapples with an unusually strong sense of maternal attachment, while trying to outwit a determined FBI agent played by Edmond O'Brien.
