Description

James Cagney Signed Inscribed “All Good Wishes” this 8×10  B&W promo photo from “Something To Sing About-A Grand National Picture.  Signature signed in blue ballpoint pen and grades 9-10. Authentication: JSA Basic Cert & Sticker.

Something to Sing About, (1937), re-released in 1947 as Battling Hoofer is the second and final film James Cagney made for Grand National Pictures – the first being Great Guy – before mending relations with and returning to Warner Bros. It is one of the few films besides Footlight Parade and Yankee Doodle Dandy to showcase Cagney’s singing and dancing talents. It was directed by Victor Schertzinger, who also wrote the music and lyrics of the original songs, as well as the story that Austin Parker’s screenplay is based on. Cagney’s co-stars are Evelyn Daw and William Frawley, and the film features performances by Gene Lockhart and Mona Barrie.

The film, which is a satire on the movie industry’s foibles, flopped in theaters, causing the just recently started “Poverty Row” independent Grand Nationalwhich had gone significantly overbudget making the film, to close its doors in 1940.

When, at 80 years of age, Cagney was asked which of his films – outside of Yankee Doodle Dandy – that he’d like to see again, this was the film he chose. Since the copyright on the film was not renewed in 1965, the film is now in the public domain in the United States.
