A collection of seven films starring James Cagney. In 'The Bride Came C.O.D.' (1941), Cagney plays charter pilot Steve Collins, a man in need of a fast buck in order to stop his plane being repossessed. His latest charter is heiress Joan Winfield (Bette Davis), who is eloping to Las Vegas with her boyfriend Allen Brice (Jack Carson). When Steve finds out that her millionaire dad is mightily opposed to the marriage, he negotiates with him to kidnap his daughter and deliver her to him in return for a financial bail-out. When the plane goes down unexpectedly in a desert ghost town, an unlikely attraction develops between Steve and Joan. 'The Fighting 69th' (1940) is a classic, propagandist war film set in the trenches of World War I following the famous 69th Irish regiment of Rainbow Division. James Cagney plays a brash new recruit whose rebelliousness causes tragedy. He discovers his patriotism after being given a second chance. In 'Torrid Zone' (1940), fruit company executive Steve Case (Pat O'Brien) is being harrassed by revolutionaries in the banana republic that hosts his plantation. He tries to convince his ex-colleague and old nemesis Nick Butler (Cagney) to come back to work to save his profits. Ann Sheridan provides the glamour and delivers the zingers with customary sass. Finally, in the musical 'The West Point Story' (1950), Cagney is Broadway director Bix Bixby, fallen on hard times due to his gambling habit, who reluctantly agrees to go to West Point military academy to help the students put on a show. Bixby, of course, has an ulterior motive - he wants to poach student star Tom Fletcher (Gordon MacRae) for his uncle's new production...
