Sale Price $510.00
Black and white publicity photograph of a scene from James Cagney's movie A Lion is in the Streets.
Photograph signed: "James Cagney". B/w, 9¼x6½. Still from the 1953 political drama, A Lion is in the Streets, in which Cagney starred as Hank Martin, a character based on Louisiana Governor Huey Long. Cagney, through his independent production company, had bought the rights to the story in 1945. The film, which was directed by Raoul Walsh and produced by Cagney's brother, William, a former actor, unfortunately was released after All the King's Men, Robert Rossen's 1949 Academy Award-winning film on Long, which overshadowed this production. James Cagney (1899-1986), who appeared in leading roles on Broadway from the mid-1920s, reached film stardom - and legendary tough guy status - with Public Enemy (1931). In addition to winning the Best Actor Academy Award for Yankee Doodle Dandy, he received two additional Oscar nominations in the category for Angels With Dirty Faces (1938) and Love Me Or Leave Me (1955). After years of health problems, Cagney made a successful film comeback in Ragtime (1981). Cagney received the American Film Institute's Life Achievement Award in 1974. Image slightly grainy. Fine condition. Framed in the Gallery of History style: 14½x17½.
