Love Me or Leave Me
Doris Day tugs at the heartstrings as a nightclub singer married to an abusive gangster, played by James Cagney.
Dir Charles Vidor
With Doris Day, James Cagney, Cameron Mitchell, Robert Keith
Doris Day shines as nightclub singer and actress Ruth Etting in this moving biopic. Etting is married to an abusive husband (Cagney playing a Chicago gangster, just for a change), but her heart belongs to the sympathetic piano player. Peppered with heart-breaking ballads such as ‘I’ll Never Stop Loving You’, along with bigger production numbers, the film showcases Day’s hauntingly lyrical voice and effortless dancing to the max.
