Jimmy the Gent is a classic. (Why can't it be purchased?!?)
10 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have seen this unforgettable movie but once - on television - and have been trying to find a copy to buy ever since.

Such a splendid cast, with James Cagney as (cocky) 'Jimmy' Corrigan, Bette Davis as (classy) Miss Joan Martin, Allen Jenkins as (tough guy) Lou, Alan Dinehart as (smarmy) Charles Wallingham, and Alice White as (lovely) Miss Mabel

What delightful dialog. For instance, ordered to show a little class by Jimmy in his attempt to impress Miss Martin, a lady receptionist answered his phone by asking, "To whom do you wish to speak?" and then promptly blowing it with, "He ain't in."

James Cagney's menacing but humorous persona verily glowed in this movie. The mold was broken when Jimmy Cagney departed.
