Synopsis:
As a psychotic thug devoted to his hard-boiled ma, James Cagney - older, scarier and just as electrifying - gives a performance to match his work in The Public Enemy as White Heat's's cold-blooded Cody Jarrett. Bracingly directed by Raoul Walsh, this fast-paced thriller tracing Jarrett's violent life in and out of jail is also a harrowing character study. Jarrett is a psychological time bomb ruled by impulse. He murders a wounded accomplice and revels in the act. He neglects his sultry wife (Virginia Mayo) and adores his doting mother. It is among the most vivid screen performances of Cagney's career, and the excitement it generates will put you on top of the world!

Mobster with mother fixation. - White Heat review by Steve Mason

Spoiler Alert
22/06/2012

For me, the high point of the gangster film. Cagney, as psychopathic killer/robber, Cody Jarrett, burns up the set, both figuratively, and in the superb incendiary coda, actually.
