The Public Enemy

We’re offering up a generous serving of beer, blood, and grapefruit as we watch another all-time great gangster movie, 1931’s The Public Enemy. Listen as we celebrate the magnetic screen presence of leading man James Cagney, thrill to director William Wellman’s dynamic visual style, and examine how the movie has inspired various crime films throughout the years, from the work of Martin Scorsese to A Clockwork Orange. Warning: Contains explicit language, spoilers, and lots of unresolved mommy issues. Also please be advised that in discussing the movie we do discuss a sexual assault and domestic violence that occur in the film.

Our theme song is "Nostalgia TV" by Edward Jonathan Blakeley through Lynne Publishing.
