For Me, It's Not the 4th Until I See This Movie

"Yankee Doodle Dandy" on TCM. I just LOVE James Cagney in that film. How can one not feel patriotic listening to the songs that were written by George M. Cohan?{#emotions_dlg.thumbup}

It was on yesterday. Not sure if it is going to be on again. There is a monthly schedule on TCM's website.

I saw it yesterday. I love James Cagney. He was such a good song and dance man.

I know! I wish that Hollywood hadn't type-casted him as a ganster, and let him do more song and dance roles.

The Capitol fireworks show had a whole segment on George M. Cohan and his inspirational, patriotic songs.

I watched both the Macy's fireworks show and the Capitol show, and the Capitol show was far more impressive when it came to the talent and content. Fireworks are fireworks and they are spectacular these days in practically any venue.

Oh gosh, my husband has to watch this too. Now I can't get the songs out of my head.

This was the first Independence Day that I didn't watch 1776. I better watch it today...

I love Yankee Doodle Dandy. My husband loves 1776 but I cannot watch more than a few minutes.

Dang! I missed it. However, we did watch Sgt. York which I had never seen before. It was awesome and, it's on again tonight.
