  • Jimmy the Gent

    1934. USA. Directed by Michael Curtiz. Screenplay by Bertram Millhauser. With James Cagney, Bette Davis, Allen Jenkins, Alice White. In one of the great Warner Bros. pre-code pictures, Cagney—all machine-gun wit and jittery ambition—stars as a street-tough swindler who must clean up his act to win the affections of his secretary (Davis). Along the way, he exposes his rival as a fraud. Preserved by The Library of Congress from the original camera negative. 67 min.
