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. EDDIE ALBERT (1906-2005), remembered for his role as city slicker turned farmer Oliver Douglas on TV's Green Acres (1965-1971) with Eva Gabor as his wife, had made his movie debut in Brother Rat in 1938; his costars included Ronald Reagan and Jane Wyman. Nominated for Best Supporting Actor in 1953 (Roman Holiday) and 1972 (The Heartbreak Kid), Albert also appeared in such films as Airport '79, Escape to Witch Mountain, The Longest Yard, Captain Newman, M.D., The Longest Day, The Sun Also Rises, The Teahouse of the August Moon, Oklahoma!, You're in the Navy Now and Hit Parade of 1947. MIKE MAZURKI (1907-1990) came to the United States from Austria-Hungary at age 6 and became a professional athlete after graduating from Manhattan College. He was given a bit part in the 1941 film The Shanghai Gesture and his acting career was off and running. Usually cast as a heavy- like the psychotic Moose Malloy in Murder My Sweet (1944), he appeared in a variety of genres with a variety of stars. Some of the more noted were I Walk Alone (1948), Dark City (1958), Kismet (1955), Some Like It Hot (1959), Donovan's Reef (1963), and his last film Dick Tracy (1990). He was a frequent TV guest star, appearing in Gilligan's Island, Bonanza, Gunsmoke and Perry Mason to name a few. All three of these actors made war movies, of course. Just a few of Cagney's military ventures were The Fighting 69th, Blood on the Sun, 13 Rue Madeleine, What Price Glory (1952, with the anti-war tone of the 1926 version muted) and The Gallant Hours. Albert's war films including Bombardier, Attack and The Longest Day. Marzurki's martial credits include Bomber's Moon and the notorious valentine to a World War II ally, Mission to Moscow (1943).
