Description
White Heat (1949): "Made it, Ma! Top of the world!" Cagney's Cody Jarrett -- a psychotic thug devoted to his tough-as-nails mother -- is the searing centerpiece of this blazing, fast-paced thriller. City for Conquest (1940): Club fighter Cagney turns pro to bankroll his composer brother's dream of writing the great New York City symphony. But life pulls the sidewalk out from under them in an intensely moving saga co-starring Ann Sheridan. Each Dawn I Die (1939): Two of the screen's famed tough guys -- Cagney as a reporter framed for manslaughter and George Raft as a big-house racketeer -- headline this prison movie that casts a reform-minded eye on the brutalizing effects of life in the slammer. "G" Men (1935): Four years after starring in The Public Enemy, Cagney waged on-screen war against the nation's public enemies as a zealous FBI agent in a movie "fast gutsy, as simplistic and powerful as a tabloid headline" (Time Out Film Guide). - Container.

Description
"G" men: It's the early days of the F.B.I. - federal agents working for the Department of Justice. Though they've got limited powers - they don't carry weapons and have to get local police approval for arrests - that doesn't stop fresh Law School grad Eddie Buchanan from joining up, and he encourages his former roommate James "Brick" Davis (James Cagney) to do so as well. But Davis wants to be an honest lawyer, not a shyster, despite his ties to mobster boss McKay, and he's intent on doing so, until Buchanan is gunned down trying to arrest career criminal Danny Leggett. Davis soon joins the "G-Men" as they hunt down Leggett (soon-to-be Public Enemy Number One) and his cronies Collins and Durfee, who are engaged in a crime and murder spree from New York to the midwest--www.imdb.com.
