American actor who usually played the gangster or tough guy. He became an overnight star in "Public Enemy," 1931 when he squashed a grapefruit in Mae Clark's face. He achieved an Oscar award for Best Actor in his performance of "Yankee Doodle Dandy," 1942.

Cagney was actually a shy millionaire who never so much as got a parking ticket. He was married in a long-term relationship, when finding out that he was infertile, they adopted two kids. He retired in 1963.

Died on 3/30/1986, Stanfordville, NY.

Cagney census.jpg
The birth year 1899 given in his auobiography, "Cagney by Cagney", and established by the New York census form (see at the right) from June 1900, which lists him as born in July 1899 (the form has no field for day of month). Where the birth time 9 am comes from is uncertain. Previously ADB had birth year 1900, which wass certainly incorrect. (Atr, 1 July 2012).
