  • Great Cagney and Raft

    • George Cagney
    • 8/17/12

    the best buddy pairing Raft and Cagney seemed well suited in their parts.Powerful performances all around.Love what Frank did for Red.

  • Each Dawn I Die

    A favourite of Warner Bros. gangster lovers. Cagney & Raft play off each other magnificently, matching each other in intensity & presence. The faults of the story arise in the last half of the picture. A fine film starring two famous actors known for playing gangsters. I give it a 3.5/5.

  • A masterpiece-must see.

    Usually we rely on Capra to show us our lives within the family, community and nation. But in 1939, after 10 years of Depression, a prison escape captured the imagination. In a similar spot today, this movie still speaks to us. This isn't about crime or prison, it's about honor, mastery, justice, love, truth and the lack thereof. There's nothing contrived about it-it demonstrates people at their best and at their worst.

    Great story, even if it is a bit far fetched. James Cagney's outstanding performance makes this one a must see film and is well worth watching. Good supporting cast.

  • The ultimate friendship

    • Bill
    • 7/15/09

    Two powerful performances made this movie a great one. One could actually feel the actors' frustration over their situations and watch their determination to do what is right. Good drama!

  • Great Psychological Study

    • 5/1/08

    Cagney is like a slowly simmering pot on the stove in this one. He is framed for murder, and goes to prison where he endures unjust treatment. When his hopes for freedom grow dimmer and dimmer, he begins to lose the grip he has maintained on his psyche, ultimately breaking down and begging for release. His bond with George Raft's character (a fellow prisoner) is representative of what friendship should be. Supporting characters are great.

  • The full measure of friendship

    • Mike
    • 7/19/06

    Raft, in an inspired performance, and likewise Cagney, Rosenbloom and cast make this one of Keighley's best.
