James Cagney is white hot (especially in his prison meltdown scene) as Cody Jarrett, tough guy/mama?s boy. The Oedipal overtones are anything but subtle in this bold gangster classic that is undisputedly top of the world. Director Raoul Walsh orchestrates an explosive climax for the OscarŽ-nominated story reportedly inspired by real-life Ma Barker and one her ever loving sons. (1949 - Warner Bros.) 114 Min.
