Both of them were good at comedy, just at the time in Hollywood though, the studios didn't think comedies were right for them and thought only drama's would get audiences to the theaters.

If that was true, though, they wouldn't have put them in a comedy at the height of their stardom in the first place. Farce just WASN'T right for either of them.

Being miscast in the wrong films was a common thing back in the golden age of Hollywood.

I was talking about The Bride Came C.O.D.
I know that, as I was just saying that Cagney was good at comedy, but it depends on the movie as to how good because comedy is the most subjective of all the film genres. As to "The Bride Came C.O.D." I thought Cagney was okay, but not so much Davis in it. It's not a bad comedy, but it's not great either.
