A classic gangster film with one of Cagney's best roles as a psychopathic robber/killer with a mother complex. The famous finale--perhaps Cagney's best-known scene--has Cagney trapped on top of a burning oil tank shouting "Made it, Ma! Top of the world!" before the tank explodes. Cagney's character is allegedly based on Arthur "Doc" Barker and his "Ma," and his portrayal is breathtaking. Also available colorized.
