- Stealing the Spotlight: Our Favourite Musical BiopicsGoing back a bit, but the biopic of legendary US song and dance man George M. Cohan, Yankee Doodle Dandy. Whilst James Cagney is perhaps best remembered for his tough guy gangster persona, here he gets a chance to showcase his pre-movie star days dancing talent, as he “hoofs” his way through several well known musical standards (including one which would go on to be used in “Go Compare” ads – if that isn’t high praise I don’t know what is!) In the best style of a studio system movie quite a few liberties are taken with the truth, however at the time the film was made the world was at war, and as such this works also as a fine propaganda piece. First saw this as part of the James Cagney retrospective which was part of the 2013 Glasgow Film Festival, and as the man himself says in one of the film’s most quoted lines: “My mother thanks you, my father thanks you, my sister thanks you, and I thank you.”
