As far as early-1950's Crime/Thrillers go, Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye (KTG, for short) was definitely something of a major let-down.

This film, which starred veteran actor James Cagney (who at 51 was clearly too old and too tired-looking for his part), had the distinctive feel of being a "quickie" written all over it.

And, speaking about James Cagney, I think (in his latter years) that he made for a mighty poor leading man. And here in KTG the viewer was expected to believe that this 5' 6" pipsqueak was a real lady-killer who was able to juggle, not one, but 2 hot, young babes (who were both bitterly jealous of each other) at one time.

I mean, c'mon, this "lover-boy" business was just too unconvincing for words, especially since Cagney's character was such an unlikable, little bully with a huge chip on his shoulder to begin with.

KTG's story was primarily a courtroom drama where each of the characters got their chance to recall (in extended flashbacks) their involvement in a payroll caper.

This predictable, little tale featured the usual line-up of crooked cops, slimy lawyers and, yes (get this!), even newlyweds who slept in separate beds.

My advice would be to pass on this dud. With there obviously being so many superior films from that era to chose from, there's no point in one wasting their time watching something as mediocre as this.

A great Cagney film, true to form. Worth seeing for the "Would you like some coffee?" scene alone.

This is one of Cagney's late-period sociopaths made to capitalize on his superb performance in White Heat. This movie is far less notable, but does have some surprising rewards. First, the script is noticeably tongue-in-cheek, and there are some fun lines and surprising scenes. Then, there is the noteworthy debut of Barbara Payton, whose descent and downfall is one of Hollywood's great cautionary tales. And the supporting cast is almost a "who's who" of B character actors. Don't go in expecting too much, and you'll find something worth watching.
