| Cagney and Mayo are great
Jimmy Cagney reunites with his White Heat co-star Virginia Mayo in a very different kind of movie - a musical comedy about a Broadway director who goes to the West Point military academy to put on a show. Cagney is the Broadway director and Mayo is his singing and dancing girlfriend. The two have a banter and chemistry that I enjoyed a lot. Doris Day is Cagney's movie star protégé he ropes into helping with the show. She falls for West Point cadet Gordon MacRae and the two sing quite a bit. It's an enjoyable film, although the songs are mostly forgettable. I think this was meant as more of a showcase for rising stars Day and MacRae but it's Cagney and Mayo who keep the film interesting. Added bonus is seeing Alan Hale, Jr. act alongside Cagney. Jimmy was in several movies with Alan Hale, Sr. who died earlier this same year.
