James Francis Cagney, Jr. (July 17, 1899 – March 30, 1986) was an American actor and dancer, both on stage and in film, though he had his greatest impact in film. Known for his consistently energetic performances, distinctive vocal style, and de...adpan comic timing, he won acclaim and major awards for a wide variety of performances. He is best remembered for playing multifaceted tough guys in movies such as The Public Enemy (1931), Taxi! (1932), Angels with Dirty Faces (1938), and White Heat (1949) and was even typecast or limited by this view earlier in his career. In 1999, the American Film Institute ranked him eighth among its list of greatest male stars of Classic Hollywood Cinema. Orson Welles said of Cagney, "[he was] maybe the greatest actor who ever appeared in front of a camera", and Stanley Kubrick considered him to be one of the best actors of all time.

I know Jimmy didn't like playing the roles. But he was the best at the roaring twenties gangster movies. He was great.
So Barbara Stanwyck dated Cagney too? Was there anyone in Hollywood, man, woman, Rin Tin Tin, Mr. Ed, that she didnt make whoopi with?
While Clark Gable was hyped the `King of Hollywood,` James Cagneuy was the top-paid star. So I say Cagney was the real top `Royal.`
I just love him....one of my favorite actors of all time!! and yes, I find him attractive...?
Ah, What is there to say. James Cagney possesses SO much appeal, it`s ridiculous. He made it easy for you to be attracted to him. The versatility that he had as an actor. He could do anything, and you would believe him. He entices you, controls your emotions, as simple as switching on a light. Would it be weird if I said that I had a crush on him? Maybe, but I think it`s completely understandable. This man is HIGH UP on my list of being one of The Greats that this film industry has brought us. Cagney was a Top Class guy. Today, You can`t find anyone even CLOSE to Captivating.
