Love Me or Leave Me
  • 1955

  • 2h 2min
  • Directed by: Charles Vidor
  • Cast: Doris Day, James Cagney, Cameron Mitchell

James Cagney received a third Best Actor Oscar nomination for his role as ruthless gangster Martin ‘The Gimp’ Snyder in this unusually candid, hard-edged biography of 1920s singer Ruth Etting. Doris Day matches him with one of the best dramatic performances of her career as Etting, a woman moulded for stardom by her Svengalilike lover and unable to escape his obsessive need to dominate and control her life. A lavish recreation of the roaring twenties, great songs (‘Ten Cents a Dance’, ‘Love Me or Leave Me’ etc) and scorching performances make this one of the best late Cagney films and the recipient of six Oscar nominations.
