Description by OLDIES.com:
James Cagney brilliantly essays the role of Cohan, a song-and-dance man who made his mark on the vaudeville stage at the young age of 13. Thereafter, he continued to rack up triumph after triumph -- until he became the first performer of the popular theater to win a Congressional Medal of Honor.
Along the way, he penned countless memorable tunes, including "Over There," "It's a Grand Old Flag," "Give My Regards to Broadway" and the film's rousing title number.

Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 155 ratings.
Being a HUGE JC fan, you have GOT to see this Award winning performance! Mr. GMC gave the movie his blessings (altho there are a few things that were exaggerated) but no matter. Jimmy is known for his epic gangster roles in Public Enemy/Roaring 20's & White Heat, but here we see what the Cag loved to do the best: sing & dance!
I charish an autographed pic of JC before he passed as well as a postcard of a painting he created. As he was also an artist. You'll always live in MY heart, JC!!!
