Anthony Quinn, Ann Sheridan, and James Cagney in City for Conquest
City for Conquest (1940) doesn’t just have one of my favorite Ann Sheridan performances… it has one of my favorite James Cagney performances AND one of my favorite Anthony Quinn performances. The film is honestly breathtaking in its magic. BRILLIANTLY directed by Anatole Litvak, the cast also includes Arthur Kennedy, George Tobias, Elia Kazan, Joyce Compton (love her to the moon and back), Donald Crisp, and Frank McHugh.
It’s safe to say that the film is just loaded with talent!
If you’re a James Cagney fan and have yet to see this film, you now know the next film you desperately need to see.
