In later years, James Cagney regarded White Heat with a combination of pride and regret; while satisfied with his own performance, he tended to dismiss the picture as a “cheap melodrama.” Seen today, White Heat stands as one of the classic crime films of the 1940s, containing perhaps Cagney’s best bad-guy portrayal. This 1949 movie runs 114 minutes and is not rated. Local film buff, Glenn Bergeron will introduce the film. Popcorn and soda served.
