THE PUBLIC ENEMY

Directed by William A. Wellman

(1931) “I’m not so tough.” Oh yeah? In his electrifying star-making performance, James Cagney moves from Chicago slum street punk to full-fledged gangster, with molls Jean Harlow, Joan Blondell and grapefruit recipient Mae Clarke in tow. Wellman set out to make “the toughest goddamn gangster picture of them all” – and succeeded. 35mm. Approx. 84 min.
12:30, 3:55, 7:20

“If you really inhabit Cagney’s energy in The Public Enemy, we are witnessing, and enjoying, a force of unhindered danger.”
– David Thomson, Warner Bros: The Making of an American Movie Studio

LADY KILLER

Directed by Roy Del Ruth

(1933) Cagney goes from movie palace usher to con artist to movie star, but can’t seem to shake those gangster buddies. But, while eschewing grapefruits, he still gives Mae Clark the roughhouse treatment. 35mm. Approx. 74 min.
