Paramount 100: The Public Enemy
Not rated, 84 min. Directed by William Wellman. Starring James Cagney, Eddie Woods, Jean Harlow, Mae Clarke and Joan Blondell.
This criminal tale excited audiences and landed the kinetic Cagney on the movie map. Now a classic, this is the movie in which Cagney famously crams a grapefruit into Mae Clarke’s face. (Double bill: Little Caesar.)No current showings of this film.
