Saturday Morning Man Movie

Today we get a clash between two of Hollywood's real men--James Cagney vs. Humphrey Bogart in The Roaring Twenties, a 1939 film from Warner Brothers.

Eddie (Cagney) and George (Bogart) are World War One buddies who fall into bootlegging during Prohibition. They do pretty well for a while, but the friendship soon goes by the wayside.

Eddie eventually hits the skids due to the stock market crash and a bad deal with George. George continues to do well, however. In the end, Eddie confronts George over George's plan to murder the guy who stole a gal that Eddie loves. And things kind of go downhill for both men during that meeting.
