#98: Yankee Doodle Dandy (1942)

I'm taking a pass on this one because I saw it as a kid. I'm sure it's a fine movie. I think I probably enjoyed at least a little of what I understood of it. It's about a guy who was a rich big deal, becomes a nobody, and then rises like a phoenix. All I remember really is a scene with some high school kids who asked him if the music he made was anything like the song "Jeepers Creepers", which is an odd twist in the era of horrible horror flicks.

This is the first reviewed in the B&W era of movies that I'm trying to become more familiar with. You can see I'm not reticent at all to watch them.

p.s. Upon seeing the image, I exclaimed to myself in my head, "Cagney! I f***ing KNEW it!"
