    James Cagney has been criminally ignored on DVD, with only a handful of titles released, almost, all of which are public domain. Finally we will have a new title out on DVD. Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye, an underrated film noir is being released on 3/26 by Artisan,(A Republic title),for the low price of $14.95 retail.
    Now if only Warner can get off it's ass and release some of his films.

    I had my fingers crossed for Yankee Doodle Dandy, White Heat, Mutiny on the Bounty, or Public Enemy, but I'll take what I can get. [​IMG]
    addendum: Before anyone gets excited, I know that Cagney was only an extra in Mutiny, but any excuse to mention it is a good one [​IMG]

    Who currently owns the rights to WHITE HEAT,

    PUBLIC ENEMY and ANGELS WITH DIRTY FACES?

    I had thought all Warner, but I distinctly

    remember some of these released under the

    CBS/FOX logo when on VHS.

    Hmmm, that would be very interesting. I'd LOVE to see Public Enemy

    White Heat, Yankee Doodle Dandy, The Roaring Twenties, Public Enemy, Angels With Dirty Faces... are all owned by Warner. Almost all of Cagney's films made before 1950 are owned by Warner. All of these films were released on Laser by MGM but Warner now has the rights back.

    Ron,

    Warner owns the following Cagney film among others, Angels With Dirty Faces, Love Me or Leave Me, The Public Enemy, The Roaring Twenties, White Heat, Yankee Doodle Dandy, G-Men, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, The Strawberry Blonde, Each Dawn I Die, The Fighting 69th, The Oklahoma Kid, City for Conquest, The Bride Came C.O.D., Come Fill the Cup, and A Lion in the Streets.

    I am definitely buying this Cagney film noir classic! For those that haven't seen "Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye", Cagney makes his character Ralph Cotter even more brutal than Cody Jarrett from "White Heat".

    Not exactly a "Cagney film," but an outstanding Milos Foreman film that captured Cagney's final film performance (which was excellent despite his physical ailments at the time): Ragtime. This one is a Paramount title.

    Is Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye the one where Cagney drags a girl out of his room by her hair?
