James Cagney Biography

James Francis Cagney, Jr. (July 17, 1899 – March 30, 1986) was an Academy Award-winning American film actor who won acclaim for a wide variety of roles, including the career-launching The Public Enemy. He was an accomplished vaudeville performer, won an Oscar for Best Actor for his portrayal of a song-and-dance man in 1942 for his role in Yankee Doodle Dandy, but is still best known for his 'tough guy' roles

Like James Stewart, Cagney became so familiar to audiences that they usually referred to him as "Jimmy" Cagney — a billing never found on any of his films. Read Full Bio >>
