James Cagney’s ‘White Heat’ to be part of Academy’s “Oscar Noir” series

HollywoodNews.com: “White Heat” (1949), featuring the return of James Cagney to the gangster genre that made him a star, will be screened as the final feature in the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ series “Oscar Noir: 1940s Writing Nominees from Hollywood’s Dark Side” on Monday, August 30, at 7:30 p.m. at the Academy’s Samuel Goldwyn Theater. The film will be introduced by writer, producer, director and five-time Oscar® nominee Paul Thomas Anderson.

“White Heat,” which stars Cagney as Cody Jarrett, a mother-obsessed escaped convict, was directed by Raoul Walsh from a screenplay by Ivan Goff and Ben Roberts. It received an Academy Award® nomination for Writing – Motion Picture Story (Virginia Kellogg).

At 7 p.m., the Warner Bros. cartoon short “Golden Yeggs” (1950), starring Daffy Duck, and footage from the 1975 dedication of the Academy’s Beverly Hills headquarters building and Samuel Goldwyn Theater will be screened as part of the evening’s pre-feature program.

“Oscar Noir” featured 15 film noir classics from the 1940s, all of which were nominated in writing categories. “White Heat” is the last screening in the series, but there will be a special encore presentation of “The Maltese Falcon,” plus recap highlights from the series, on Monday, September 13.
