Companion film to Cagney's Yankee Doodle Dandy.
9 August 1999 | by See all my reviews

Companion film to Jimmy Cagney's Yankee Doodle Dandy, with Bob Hope as Broadway's Eddie Foy. Jimmy Cagney reprises his Yankee Doodle role as Foy's friendly rival George M. Cohan in a spectacular dance sequence. A far cry from his lighter other comedies, Bob Hope has never been better. Great for anyone seeking a great family entertainment or a colorful musical.
