Celebrate Independence Day with a classic!

This biopic about renowned musical composer, playwright, actor, dancer and singer George M. Cohan, memorably played by James Cagney, is perhaps the most patriotic movie around!

The tale of Cohan, the Broadway great born on the 4th of July who inspired a nation during The Great War with such songs as “It’s a Grand Old Flag” and “Over There,” was exactly what a WWII nation needed upon its summer of 1942 release. The film earned Cagney, an actor known primarily for his tough-guy roles, his only Oscar statuette. See it on the 4th and join in the chorus!
