Product Description

A collection of four films starring James Cagney. In 'The Bride Came C.O.D.' (1941), Cagney plays charter pilot Steve Collins, a man in need of a fast buck in order to stop his plane being repossessed. His latest charter is heiress Joan Winfield (Bette Davis), who is eloping to Las Vegas with her boyfriend Allen Brice (Jack Carson). When Steve finds out that her millionaire dad is mightily opposed to the marriage, he negotiates with him to kidnap his daughter and deliver her to him in return for a financial bail-out. When the plane goes down unexpectedly in a desert ghost town, an unlikely attraction develops between Steve and Joan. 'The Fighting 69th' (1940) is a classic, propagandist war film set in the trenches of World War I following the famous 69th Irish regiment of Rainbow Division. James Cagney plays a brash new recruit whose rebelliousness causes tragedy. He discovers his patriotism after being given a second chance. In 'Torrid Zone' (1940), fruit company executive Steve Case (Pat O'Brien) is being harrassed by revolutionaries in the banana republic that hosts his plantation. He tries to convince his ex-colleague and old nemesis Nick Butler (Cagney) to come back to work to save his profits. Ann Sheridan provides the glamour and delivers the zingers with customary sass. Finally, in the musical 'The West Point Story' (1950), Cagney is Broadway director Bix Bixby, fallen on hard times due to his gambling habit, who reluctantly agrees to go to West Point military academy to help the students put on a show. Bixby, of course, has an ulterior motive - he wants to poach student star Tom Fletcher (Gordon MacRae) for his uncle's new production...

This Box set is available for a very reasonable price. However the only film that my wife and I really enjoyed was 'The West Point Story' nearly as good as 'Yankee Doodle Dandy'. Cagney was really at his best when he was either a gangster or all singing and dancing role as he is in this film. The transfers are excellent and there are some interesting extras on this boxset. I've given it three stars only because I really enjoyed 'West Point' and the price for the four disc is only pence more than buying the title as a single disc,

I have awarded this movie(West Point Story) only 3 stars because the plot is just routine. With any other actor in the lead I would only have given one star. Anything with James Cagney is always watchable and if it includes the beautiful Virginia Mayo another plus.

Since my review of the 20th February 20th 2014, I Have revised my award to 4 stars. Torrid Zone is rather routine but made watchable by Cagney's performance. The Fighting 69th shows Cagney at his cockiest, then brought down to earth with cowardly fear,finally redeeming his character through heroic self-sacrifice. Last but not least, The Bride Came C.O.D. is much better than I remembered on this my second viewing.(I watched a very poor presentation on TV) Bette Davis and James Cagney make the most of a routine serviceable script and having two superstar personalities in the same movie is fascinating.
