Legendary star and Academy Award-winner James Cagney provides the magnetism for this pair of little known gems. After a dispute with Warner Bros., Cagney made some films away from the studio, including "Great Guy" (1936). Cagney is in his standard tough guy mode, but this time he's out to stop government corruption. "The Time of Your Life" (1948), a comedy based on William Saroyan's Pulitzer Prize-winning play, offers a playful contrast as Cagney plays a regular guy whose world revolves around a colorfulSan Francisco dive bar. The latter also stars William Bendix and Broderick Crawford.
