Co-presented with UCLA Film & Television Archive
Recommend for ages 6+
James Cagney sings and dances through an electric, Oscar-winning performance in this star-spangled musical spectacular. The story of a Broadway showman’s rags-to-riches journey from the vaudeville circuit to stardom is a celebration of an American life, told through musical performances of patriotic classics. (1942, Dir. M. Curtiz, 35 mm, b/w, 126 min.)
The Family Flicks Film Series is copresented by the UCLA Film & Television Archive. Matinee screenings for families and film buffs, featuring new and classic films from around the world.
