John Archer in White Heat

White Heat

1949 NR

"Made it, Ma, top of the world!" James Cagney is riveting as homicidal gangster Cody Jarrett (complete with an "insane mother" complex) in this hard-boiled movie that costars Virginia Mayo as his two-timing wife. Edmond O'Brien's the cop who infiltrates Cody's gang to bring him down -- and that he does in the legendary finale that plays out in an industrial yard filled with giant fuel tanks. Better watch those stray bullets! Raoul Walsh directs.
