Storyline

On March 20, 1986, when the news of James Cagney's death reached historian and author Scott Allen Nollen (later to write WARNERS WISEGUYS: ROBINSON, CAGNEY and BOGART for McFarland, 2008), his tears turned into notes as he picked up his mandolin and automatically played the melody that became the elegy "James Cagney," which he then arranged, performed and recorded in a record 30 minutes. Written by Michael Allen
