WHITE HEAT (1949)
"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
