Today's awesome person was supposed to have been James Cagney all by himself, but I have trouble finding pictures of actors alone unless I really like them. Therefore, I've resorted in the past to posting photos of the actor I'm supposed to be posting and a favorite actress. In this case, James Cagney and Joan Blondell (but they are actually really cute so I'm not sorry!):
I have actually never seen one of James Cagney's movies. I saw part of "Blonde Crazy", but I can't remember finishing it.
His hair was a Van Gogh, Renoir, Titian red with… gold waving through. His eyes were delft blue, with the longest, thickest lashes I have ever seen. He blinked his eyes at me, and since I had never seen a blink like that before, I instantaneously fell in love. --Joan Blondell
Going to a Gone with the Wind party in 1939.
James Cagney with a moustache. I can't decide whether I really like it or really hate it...it's altogether too interesting, honestly.
