Jimmy Cagney Gets "Atmosphere"
Los Angeles -- James Cagney, pugnacious -- although likeable -- screen star is developing a "nose for news." In search of atmosphere and authenticity for the part he is about to play in his next film, Picture Snatcher, a story of newspaper work, Jimmy was instructed in the fundamentals of newspaper work at a Los Angeles daily. Here he is shown in the Linotype room. (1933)
