      What a great show that was made so many years ago...
      Where is this kind of producing/acting/patriotism today. Buy it and show it to your children teach them what it is to be an American.

            Comments about this product:

            This movie needs to be shone more often to remind America what real patriotism is. Truly great in all respects. My only complaint is the audio rises and falls. It will be difficult to gather this much talent together for a movie again.

                This movie was made well before my time, but I grew up watching this movie as a kid,and I have always enjoyed it every time I watch it. The producers couldn't have gotten this movie more patriotic if they tried, and it's shows the American spiit at it's best!

                  I've loved this movie for years, and when my copy would no longer play, I had to get a new one. This is an excellent copy, and the additional material on the second disc is very interesting.

                    This is a "essential movie" for all ages. Superior pure Americana music, superior story of an American family, superior historical data of the United states in the early 20th century. A great movie for all audiences...

                          It is a great political movie and Pro-American film made during wartime. It shows Americanism at its best and showcases the life of George M Cohan and the many songs he wrote.

                          Not a Cagney or mobster fan, he was cast against type and won an Oscar. Surprising, a little TOO patriotic, but a man's musical if there ever was one.

                            He play this part as if he was Cohan and he made you proud you were an American. Proud to be a flag waving patriot from the good old US of A. It's a shame more people in this country don't feel this in their heart as we do and what this movie brings out makes your heart swell with pride and love for God, Flag, and Country! Loved It so much!

                                  The movie has always had a place in my heart for the story and I have always been amazed by Cagneys dancing! Living close to Manhatten, I am familiar with George M. Cohan's statue on Broadway. Its nice to learn about the personality behind the statue! The comments by John Travolta were special! Cagney was always special to me, happy to know Travolta felt the same way!

                                    I'm impressed with James Cagney as a song and dance man. Some of his other roles don't aren't as good.

                                      Jimmy Cagney always considered himself a song and dance man, and this film shows that side of him at its best! It's the life of George M. Cohan, who I, as a child, never heard of. Watching this film, I realized I knew every song in it! What a wonderful patriot he was! What wonderful music he created. What a wonderful film with Cagney at his best! I drag this film out every Fourth of July. Another wonderful black and white film! So good, you forget it's in black and white!

                                            I don't like many Jimmy Cagney movies but when I do it is an experience to remember. The songs and dancing as well as the plot all actually say something to you. I have loved this movie since I was a young girl and a family member had me watch it with them around July 4th that year. I can't think of a better time of year to air this and get out your patriotic spirit!
