This week's reviews are of three of Mr Cagney's classics, including 1933's 'Lady Killer', 1936's 'Great Guy', and 1941's 'The Strawberry Blonde'.

Episode 17: Who Is Number Fifteen?

Welcome back, everyone!

Forget your contemporary pop stars, why didn’t the ‘Spry’ song ever permeate the national consciousness?

Not only that, but it’s ‘Summer Money Time’, a time to be consistently interrupted.

Adam deals out lashings of High-Octane-80’s-High-Fives to all the good folk who’ve been making his days lately, and the Sexist Advertisement Klaxon once again rears its politically incorrect head.

What’s the most inappropriate radio show that a grammatically worrying “Just Right Sweet” sugar coated treat could possibly be linked to? 

Join The Attaboy Clarence Film Club and sound off, damn you.

PLUS, reviews of the nail-biting noir-thriller ‘The Woman In The Window’, the Cagney comedy ‘The Irish In Us’ ("O’HARA"), a horribly disappointing version of Edgar Allan Poe’s ‘The Black Cat’ starring Basil Rathbone, and James Stewart’s first movie, ‘The Murder Man’.

The radio play this week is an intriguing slice of mystery and drama, entitled ‘Libel’, from the Lux Radio Theatre, so turn the volume up, and settle back in for the just right sweet return of The Attaboy Clarence Podcast!

Episode 5, you beautiful people!

Adam reviews 'Stand-In' and 'It's Love I'm After' both with Leslie Howard, and both from 1937. 

Also, get tough with Jimmy Cagney's 'Angels With Dirty Faces', and its bizarre sequel, 'Angels Wash Their Faces' starring a former president of the USA.

And just who the hell DID win the 'Son' and the 'Ghost' of Frankenstein?

There's more love for Eric Blore, a wonderful James Cagney radio play from the Lux Radio Theatre, and news of next week's extravaganza, dedicated to Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce's Sherlock Holmes series of films and radio plays.
