Product Description

Product Description

Yankee Doodle Dandy: Special Edition (Dbl DVD)

Amazon.ca

James Cagney thrills in a rare (and limber) song-and-dance performance as composer-entertainer George M. Cohan. This nostalgic biography is told in flashbacks, covering Cohan's formative years becoming Broadway's brightest star and touching upon his loves, musicals, and artistic triumphs. Director Michael Curtiz (The Adventures of Robin Hood) offers Cagney ample opportunities to invent an utterly charming performance in what is practically a one-man show. If you've never seen Cagney as a hoofer, you're in for a treat: his dancing is as dynamic as anything else he's ever done on screen. --Tom Keogh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: DVD
With gloriously entertaining numbers and top notch direction. Among the best biopics of all time. A great, amazing, brilliant performance from Cagney; and excellent jobs from Walter Huston (Tresure of the Sierra Madre) and Michael Curtiz (Casablanca) who got help in the musical numbers by George M. Cohan himself. Watch for the marvellous performance from Cagney; but the musical numbers are great too. This is a good edition; Warner has been earning great merit in the DVD world lately.

I didn't expect to like this movie at all, as I'm not much of a flag waver and from the isolated scenes I had seen from this film, that seemed to be all that took place in it. It's still pretty cornball in its approach to American patriotism and fervour, and with the American government currently bullying its way around the world, the "let's be proud we're all Americans" broo-hah-hah on display in the film is even harder to digest. But don't avoid this movie if those are your only reservations about it.
"Yankee Doodle Dandy" has an energetic drive to it that many films lack. The 125-minute running time flies by, and the film is never once boring. This energy is due almost entirely to one thing: James Cagney.
Cagney tears into the role of George M. Cohan with everything he's got, and just try taking your eyes off of him whenever he's on screen. He can't sing at all, and he's really more of an acrobat than a dancer, but he pulls off the role of a Broadway showman effortlessly.
The rah-rah American sentiments are obviously a product of the time, and little more than World War II propaganda at moments, but I could swallow them easier in this film for some reason. Maybe because when they're at their most intrusive (the "Grand Old Flag" number, for instance), the spectacle is so rousing that I would have been just as moved if they'd been singing about cheese and crackers.
A deservedly beloved American classic.

YANKEE DOODLE DANDY is one of the great feel good movies of all time. The movie tells the story of the life of George M. Cohan as told by Cohan himself to Franklin Roosevelt. Though he is proud of himself and his accomplishments, we see in Cohan someone who had great success but also learned from his bumps, bruises, and mistakes. It is a Hollywood extravaganza. There are song and dance numbers, a large all star cast, and it is pure pleasure all the way. The factor that makes the film so special is James Cagney in the role of Cohan. Perhaps because he plays the bad guy so often, we are surprised to see him singing and dancing as a nice guy. Many believe that this role was his best and shows his versatility as an actor. I could not agree more.
The movie has historic value. It was released in the early years of World War II, at a time when Americans were confident but unsure as to what would happen in the war. Movies such as YANKEE DOODLE DANDY stirred patriotism at such a critical moment in our history. This becomes especially clear when he received the Congressional Medal of Honor from Roosevelt at the end of the film.
The two disc special addition has an added bonus of a disc about Cagney's life hosted by Michael J. Fox-an added bonus for old movie buffs.

"Yankee Doodle Dandy" is the five star musical biography, based on the life of George M. Cohen. Starring James Cagney and Joan Leslie, and with a score by Cohen jam packed with standards that will leave your foot tapping, this the the grand patriot send up that Hollywood musicals used to be so darn good at and so nice to have this penultimate flag waver on DVD at long last.
THE TRANSFER: In a word - "pristine". Warner Brothers DVD is immaculate with NO DIGITIAL ARTIFACTS of any kind. Better still, the glorious silver sheen of the original camera negative, long absent from previously issued VHS and laserdisc versions, is brilliantly restored herein. The audio is MONO and very nicely balanced.
EXTRA FEATURES: A beautiful compendium of shorts, documentaries, cartoons, isolated audio recordings, audio commentaries, outtakes and featurettes await you on this very special two disc edition. Everything has been designed to give you the look and feel of a "roadshow" engagement at the local movie house.
BOTTOM LINE: NOTHING BUT KUDOS to the good people at Warner Brothers for a sterling, rousing and much appreciated DVD that is really one of the best looking transfers you are likely to encounter on DVD - regardless of the film's age. A MUST HAVE and then some!
