WHITE HEAT (1949)

Intro by film noir scholar Foster Hirsch on Oct. 15

"Made it, Ma! Top of the world!" James Cagney gives an impressive, unhinged and iconic performance as psychologically unstable gangster Cody Jarrett. A murderous criminal and tyrannical gang boss, Jarrett's only soft spot is for his mother (Margaret Wycherly), herself a tough old broad who's not afraid to get her hands dirty. Featuring Virginia Mayo as Jarrett's neglected moll, Steve Cochran as his second-in-command with ambitions of his own and Edmond O'Brien as the G-man sent undercover to root out Jarrett's operation. DIR Raoul Walsh; SCR Ivan Goff, Ben Roberts; PROD Louis F. Edelman. U.S., 1949, b&w, 114 min. NOT RATED
