The Strawberry Blonde

A delicious bit of Americana (1941) by Raoul Walsh, capturing superbly the 1890s ambience of Walsh's own early years. James Cagney is marvelous as a decent young dentist who becomes infatuated with gold digger Rita Hayworth but marries steady, likable Olivia de Havilland, then becomes involved with a shady operator (Jack Carson), and ends up a sadder, wiser ex-convict. Just the right balance of touching nostalgia and understated comedy. Recommended as one of Walsh's (and Cagney's) best efforts. 97 min.
