Capturing a Golden Moment #5: White Heat

 

In this series I'd like to present some exceptional scenes inspired by cinema's most gifted artists of yesteryear.

 

White Heat (1949)

Director: Raoul Walsh

Scene: "Prison Breakdown"

This little display of emotion demonstrates why James Cagney was such a great actor and commanding star. Creatively written by Ivan Goff and Ben Roberts. Superbly delivered by director Walsh.
