Actor. One of the most popular and acclaimed actors of his time, his career spanned fifty-five years. He was awarded the Academy Award for Best Actor in a Leading Role for his portrayal of composer and entertainer George M. Cohan in 1942’s “Yankee Doodle Dandy”. He was successful in his early days of his career with memorable portrayals of “tough guys” in now-iconic films such as “The Public Enemy” (1931), “Angels with Dirty Faces” (1938), and “White Heat” (1949). His line of “Made it Ma! Top of the World!” from “White Heat” was named as the 19th greatest all-time movie quote by the American Film Institute. In addition to his 1942 Oscar, he was nominated twice for Best Actor for his work in “Angels with Dirty Faces” and 1955’s “Love Me or Leave Me”. His last film was 1981’s “Ragtime”.
