"In Yankee Doodle Dandy, James Cagney plays George M. Cohan - a well renowned American entertainer who was known professionally as a playwright, composer, lyricist, actor, singer, dancer and producer. Mr. Cohan was responsible for writing and composing more than three-dozen Broadway musicals between the eras of World War I and World War II. Yankee Doodle Dandy, which was released in 1942, earned James Cagney an Academy Award for his marvelous singing renditions and dancing performances from songs that included Over Here, and Give My Regards to Broadway".
