"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

Million Dollar Movie

Any goldbrickers out there? Got something for you.

White Heat, which to my mind is Cagney’s greatest gangster movie, is playing at the Museum of Modern Art this week, Wednesday through Friday at 1:30 in the afternoon.

I haven't seen White Heat in years, but I recall thinking Cagney's character (Cody Jarrett?) was ahead of its time. He wasn't just a gangster, he was a total nutjob - he could have been pals with Dennis Hopper's Frank Booth.

Yup, Cody. Good memory. Yeah, and you can see where actors like Nicholson were influenced by Cagney in this one.
