The Golden Age of Hollywood, as Told Through James Cagney Memorabilia

James Cagney memorabilia are some of the most sought collector’s items, connecting us with the classic films put out by Hollywood in the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s. From the gangster films of Prohibition America to “Yankee Doodle Dandy”, James Cagney memorabilia salutes Cagney’s acting prowess and the magic of Hollywood cinema. James Cagney memorabilia can include signed photos, handwritten letters, wardrobe from his movies or the crowning achievement of his Academy Award.

James Cagney won the Academy Award in 1942 for “Yankee Doodle Dandy”, which was auctioned by Nate D. Sanders in 2014. Interestingly, Oscars awarded during WWII were made of plaster because of rationing, which were then turned in for “regular” Oscars after the war ended. In his role as George Cohan, moviegoers were shocked at Cagney’s ability to transform himself from a gangster tough guy to a song and dance man extraordinaire. It is the ultimate in James Cagney memorabilia.

Sometimes a signed photo or autographed letter is appreciated by collectors, as a more personal way to connect with their cinematic heroes. Nate D. Sanders sold this James Cagney photo signed as “Jim Cagney”. It’s a unique piece of James Cagney memorabilia in that it portrays him in profile as the ultimate leading man.

This autograph letter signed is also a unique piece of James Cagney memorabilia as Mr. Cagney didn’t write letters very often. He also signed this as “Jim C.”, indicating he went by Jim rather than James in his personal life.
