Possibly one of the "worst" films ever made bearing Cagney's name---this (and the attractive synopsis to the so-called screen-play) was the ONLY reason I bought it! Sadly Cagney (during the after-war years with all their unemployment and depression) felt so well-off financially that he could employ most of his family, and bring in the 'Big' names in the acting business (Broderick Crawford & Ward Bond) to peddle this vapid, empty, unscripted, meaningless and meandering stupid waste of film!
It is a 'warning' to everyone, that, unless one has had a 'preview' of a movie. NEVER purchase it!!!!
Not what you'd expect from Cagney. A gentle slight;y surreal film based on the William Saroyan play set in a San Francisco bar, as one after another eccentrics come in and out of the bar watched by the mysterious Joe. The dialogue has an offbeat humour that tickles the insides and makes one wistful too. Part of me will always be in that bar...
I bought it for my brother and rather than get him an ordinary card chose this card complete with a c.d. He absolutely loved it. There was so much information on the c.d. relating to the year he was born that he wasn't aware of before.I would definitely recommend this company, the card arrived in good time and was intact. I will be buying more novelty cards from this site in the future. :-)
Bought this DVD as a 50th birthday present & am very happy with it. It has loads of footage from 1964, from news stories, sports events & music. Really takes you back! Very prompt deliivery & great buy!
I purchase this item for my friend Summer, as she was born in 1981, she found it very interesting to find out about the events that were taking place not only in this country, but world wide, in America, where she is from. Try to remember, when viewing the contents of this DVD, that the material is thirty - one years old and the makers of the DVD have not done anything to improve the quality of pictures and sound.
I am very pleased with the prompt delivery off this i only ordered it yesterday and it arrived first thing this morning . I am sure my mum will enjoy looking back on the year she was born . Her Birthday is in early May .... I f your looking to mark a special day for some one than look no further . I am also looking forward to watching this with mum with a cuppa and have a insight into live in 1934
I bought this for my uncle's 80th birthday. I thought I would this would be an ideal for a trip down memory lane and this sort of thing usually starts folk talking about their earlier years, leading to some interesting items coming to light. The DVD also comes with a birthday card illustrated from the same year making it an all round gift.
This series of dvds covers a selection of years, whatever the year this is a great gift. What was it like when ? was born or? got married interesting for both giver and receiver, use instead of a card or as a gift in its own right, an item that will provide lasting interest.
