5.0 out of 5 stars the hardest of hard-boiled 23 July 2009
Excellent, very tough and violent crime movie with Cagney on top form as the brutal, merciless thug coming up against Ward Bond's equally vicious corrupt police detective. There's hardly a sympathetic character in sight as Cagney, beats, shoots and generally brutalises everyone who stands in his way.
One moment that made me laugh however - at one point Cagney gets married and we see him and his bride in her room, in her home on their wedding night - in seperate single beds! The Hollywood prodution code sure had some funny ideas about acceptable human behaviour! OK so people can kill in cold blood, beat, cripple and maim but have a couple share a bed together...
Nevertheless a great, entirely cynical movie. Highly recommended

Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye is directed by Gordon Douglas and adapted to screenplay by Harry Brown from the novel by Horace McCoy. It stars James Cagney, Barbara Payton, Helena Carter, Ward Bond, Luther Adler and Steve Brodie. Music is by Carmen Dragon and photography by J. Peverell Marley.

Ralph Cotter (Cagney), career criminal, escapes from prison and crudely murders his partner during the escape. Hooking up with Holiday Carleton (Payton), the oblivious sister of the slain partner, Cotter quickly gets back into a life of crime and violence. But will his evil deed stay a secret? How long can he keep the corrupt coppers under wraps? And is his "other" romantic relationship with Margaret Dobson (Carter) doomed to failure? ......

Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye, it seems to have been lost in the slipstream of White Heat that was released the previous year. An undoubted classic of the gangster/crime genre, and featuring one of Cagney's greatest acting performances, White Heat has unsurprisingly dwarfed many a poor genre entry. However, while it doesn't equal the searing ferocity of White Heat, both in tone and character performance by Cagney, Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye is a seriously hard movie. Energetic from the off, film is often brutal and cynical and awash with potently memorable scenes, with some deemed as being too much, resulting in the film being banned from theatres in Ohio!

Female or a cripple, it matters not to the menacing force of nature that is Ralph Cotter.

Gordon Douglas was a multi genre director, unfussy and able to keep things taut, he gets some super performances from the cast while never letting the pace drag.

One of my favourite films of all time is Cagney's "White Heat", When I say that this is, in a similar vein, nearly as good it's the highest compliment I can pay. A forgotten classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cagney and Larceny 26 Jun 2014
After completing a semi~successful prison break, Ralph Cotter, the surviving escapee, decides he's going to put to good use his criminal know how and take what he wants from the city he's hiding in.
At first this appears like it might be a rather tall order, with the underbelly of the city home to some very dog eat dog characters, but as he begins to take more risks, things begin to pay off.
However as his lust for power, selfishness and psychotic reasoning, further alienate those closest to him, it is not long before his past actions start to take their toll, with an ever increasing danger...

I'd never seen this before I don't think, and on that basis, I'm gonna say that this is a slightly lesser known but nevertheless top drawer Cagney movie, up there with some of his best gangster stuff (Roaring Twenties, White Heat, The Public Enemy, Angels With Dirty Faces etc etc). It's quite a violent film for 1950, with Cagney's villain acting on his vicious impulses time and time again, dominating and using those around him, as he chances his way to the top.
And although I am no psychiatrist, I suspect that if you were to take the term 'psychopath' in it's true sense or medical definition, Cagney probably nails it with his character here perfectly!
The support cast are very decent too, with several of them ideal for their roles. Ward Bond as the corrupt police inspector, is just great.
Of course some of the character actions seem a little dated, with Cagney's single bed wedding night, a prime example.
But for all it's odd moments of unrealistic plotting or character behaviour, by the end of the film (and I'm trying hard not to give anything away here!), I was that engrossed, that I think I issued an audible sigh of relief when 'that revolver' actually worked..

The Cornerstone Media print is certainly watchable, a little soft here and there, with the occasional green tinge, but generally speaking no major problems.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Cagney 31 May 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This was a hell of a film for the day. This is not a typical cheesy 30's or 40's film, it does have some real strong moments, not to mention (James Cagney's) performance. Made up this finally came out on DVD, it's been a long time since I seen it.

Worth getting whether your a JC fan or just want to see a classic film to add to you're collection.
