The Public Enemy Two young Chicago hoodlums, Tom Powers (James Cagney) and Matt Doyle (Eddie Woods), rise up from their poverty-stricken slum life to become petty thieves, bootleggers and cold-blooded killers. But with street notoriety and newfound wealth, the duo feels the heat from the cops and rival gangsters both. Despite his ruthless criminal reputation, Tom tries to remain connected to his family, however, gang warfare and the need for revenge eventually pull him away. White Heat Gang leader Cody Jarrett (James Cagney) lives for his mother, planning heists between horrible headaches. During a train robbery that goes wrong, Cody shoots an investigator. Realizing Cody will never be stopped if he knows he's being pursued, authorities plant undercover agent Hank (Edmond O'Brien) in Cody's cell. When his mother dies, a distraught Cody breaks out of jail, bringing Hank along to join his gang. With Hank in communication with the police, Cody plans a payroll heist. The Roaring Twenties After World War I, friends Eddie (James Cagney), George (Humphrey Bogart) and Lloyd (Jeffrey Lynn) return to America with ambitions for the future. Lloyd becomes a lawyer, but Eddie can only find work as a cab driver and eventually falls into the bootlegging business. Eddie and George become partners in crime, but the stock market crash destroys their operation and turns the old friends against each other, while Eddie falls in love with Lloyd's girlfriend, Jean (Priscilla Lane). The Fighting 69th Scrappy Irish-American Private Jerry Plunkett (James Cagney) is brash and defiant as his regiment trains for war, provoking his superiors and playing the rebel. On the battlefield, however, he proves cowardly, placing the lives of his fellow soldiers at risk. Only Father Duffy (Pat O'Brien) is willing to give Plunkett another chance. As the stakes grow higher and the battlefields lay covered with the dead, his moment of truth may prove either heroic or disastrous.   Actors: James Cagney Directors: William Wellman, Raoul Walsh, William Keighley Language: English Subtitles: English, French Number of discs: 4

Collection of four classic features starring James Cagney. In 'The Public Enemy' (1931) two boys, Tom Powers (Cagney) and Matt Doyle (Edward Woods), graduate from the slums to petty crime and eventually gangsterhood while a mob war brews on the streets of Chicago. 'White Heat' (1949) follows Cody Jarrett (Cagney) as he leads his gang to a mountain hideaway after a mail coach robbery ends with four men dead. While they are being pursued and mobster Big Ed (Steve Cochran) is after control of the gang, Cody remains fixated on the well-being of his beloved mother. In 'The Roaring Twenties' (1939) a trio of men, having fought together in the First World War, return to America and try to make a living in the midst of the prohibition era. Finally, 'The Fighting 69th' (1940) is set in the trenches of World War I following the famous 69th Irish regiment of Rainbow Division. Jerry Plunkett (Cagney) is a brash new recruit whose rebelliousness causes tragedy but he discovers his patriotism after being given a second chance.
