Classic Film: "Yankee Doodle Dandy"
(1942, 126 minutes, Black and White) Directed by Michael Curtiz. A musical portrait of composer/singer/dancer George M. Cohan. From his early days as a child-star in his family's vaudeville show up to the time of his comeback at which he received a medal from the president for his special contributions to the US, this is the life- story of George M. Cohan, who produced, directed, wrote and starred in his own musical shows for which he composed his famous songs. Winner of three Oscars: Best Actor in a Leading Role (James Cagney), Best Music/Scoring of a Musical Picture and Best Sound and nominated for five more, Yankee Doodle Dandy is a patriotic showcase on a grand scale.
