EP. 308.4 — White Heat
Paul & Amy are gunning for 1949’s James Cagney gangster epic White Heat! They discuss the film’s influence on artists from Denzel to Madonna, praise the undersung career of director Raoul Walsh, and explore why the complex psychology of Cagney’s character Cody Jarrett was so unprecedented. Plus: Did the mob really put a hit out on Cagney during filming?
