5.0 out of 5 stars Cagney - Cinema's greatest tough guy 3 Jan 2006
By A Customer
Forget Pacino, De Niro and all other pretenders. James Cagney was without doubt cinema's greatest tough guy - and his influence on modern cinema lives on today in shape of Goodfellas, Mean Streets, Once Upon A Time in America, Scarface and many many more that were inspired by his movies. Throughout the 1930's and late 1940's he electrified the screen headlining some of the best gangster movies of the period - The Public Enemy, The Roaring Twenties, Angels With Dirty Faces & White Heat. He had that special quality that separated him from the rest - a kind of kinetic energy that gave him the ability to let fly and give everything in his performances. When Cagney is on screen you cannot take your eyes off him & thats what makes him a true cinematic great.
Warner Bros brought together the four movies mentioned above in this superb box set. The Public Enemy (1931) sees Cagney in his breakthrough role as Tom Powers - who rises from small town hoodlum to big time gangster. The Roaring Twenties (1939) sees Cagney star alongside Humphrey Bogart as an ex war hero who gets involved over his head in bootlegging during the Prohibition era. Angels With Dirty Faces (1938) sees Cagney star with Pat O'Brien as two friends whose lives take dramatically different paths. Cagney is Rocky Sullivan who takes to a life of crime while Pat O'Brien becomes a man of the cloth as Father Jerry Connelly. However a conflict of interests soon arises when Rocky takes a group of youths (known as "The Dead-End Kids") under his wing much to the dismay of Father Jerry who is trying to make them lead a honest life. Finally & a personal favourite is the glorious White Heat (1949).

5.0 out of 5 stars Made it, Ma 7 Jun 2009
James Cagney - The Signature Collection : Angels With Dirty Faces / Public Enemy / Roaring Twenties / White Heat (4 Disc Box Set) [1931] [DVD]

White Heat is one of my all time favourite movies, and I'd have been willing to buy the set for it alone. I didn't know any of the others in this set before, and I'm stunned at the sheer brilliance of Cagney's acting and the high quality of the movies. White Heat is still my favourite, but it's closely followed by Angels With Dirty Faces (chilling death house scene) and The Public Enemy, the ending of which has been leaving me breathless. Once I got used to the newsreels I loved The Roaring Twenties, too. I'm totally blown away by Cagney's acting skills.

The set itself is a real bargain. Each movie comes with commentary, short documentary (including parts of an interview with Scorsese) and "Warner Night at the Movies" (newsreel, short, cartoon and trailer, all from the year of release of the respective feature). I had tremendous fun feeling like a movie goer from the thirties and forties. I can't recommend this set highly enough!

5.0 out of 5 stars Top Class Cagney! 9 Oct 2007
By David Lusher TOP 1000 REVIEWER
This boxed set contains four of James Cagney's best films. They are all superb, with great stories and strong performances. Each is a classic in its own right. It's nice to see a set that is not padded out with work of lesser quality. This is a must buy for all Cagney (and gangster film) fans.

When I first bought this box set I hadn't ever seen any of James Cagney's films. What made me want this box set then? Well, I'm a fan of Martin Scorsese's movies and I saw in some interview with him that two of his favourite movies were 'White Heat' and 'Angels With Dirty Faces'. So, I figured they're worth checking out.

So that leads me to amazon.co.uk were I found both of the films in the same box set. Perfect.

I can say I enjoyed all the movies quite a lot. I watched a movie a day for four days in a row. Starting with the earliest (The Public Enemy) to the most recent (White Heat).

The Public Enemy - This was probably my favourite. Stylish and very well shot. I was surprised with it being made in 1931. I think as of yet this is the oldest movie I have seen. SO, I was expecting it to be terrible and look just the same. I was wrong and happy to be. The movie is worth seeing just for the grapefruit scene. Absolutely hilarious.

Angels with Dirty Faces - Very good film with a great ending. Still has me thinking about that one. Another film which was well shot, again to my surprise. You'd think I'd have learnt by now. The only bad thing I could say about this film was that the "dead end kids" were quite annoying.

The Roaring Twenties - Another good one. I enjoyed this one more than Angels With Dirty Faces.

White Heat - Probably the most classic and well known film of the bunch. The film that contains the "Made it ma, top of the world!" line. Strange that I had always known this line or some variation of it yet never seen the movie or heard of it. Possibly know it from Delboys impression on Only Fools and Horses. I think that this may be the case for a lot of people also.
