TJ's Movie Reviews
Yankee Doodle Dandy
03/17/08 at 07:52 AM by TJ Wells
Directed by Michael Curtiz
1942 Musical Biography
Not Rated

*****

Every so often you are able to see a performance that reminds you why movies are made. This is one of those movies. Jimmy Cagney's performance as legendary stage performer George M. Cohan is easily one of the top 5 of all time. Yes, the movie is propaganda, but so what? It came out right after Pearl Harbor was attacked, and it doesn't make any apologies about it. Besides, even if it wasn't, Cagney's performance is so perfect and timeless that it keeps any flaws that the film may have from reaching the surface.
