Yankee Doodle Dandy is the story of the life of US Patriot George Cohan (Played by Cagney).
Ordinarily I do not like musicals, especially ones made years and years before my birth, so when I came to sit down and watch Yankee Doodle Dandy I was only watching it for Cagney.
Was I wrong, not only is the story incredibly interesting, but the songs are choreographed exceptionally and Cagney shows his great singing and dancing skills.
Do not be fooled, this will be a film you can watch over and over again, despite being an old musical, it simply is a must for your collection whether you love James Cagney, Musicals, or Classic Hollywood.
Do yourself a favour.
