    Despite Warner Brothers' formulaic, factory output of movies during this time, Cagney, with his intuitive adlibs and goodies, overcomes and makes the picture worth watching (as usual). Still, it must be said that the pacing was too fast, and characters were not given enough chance to fully develop. The Irish In Us, I would say, is a good example of the studio's bad treatment of its actors, leaving this reviewer with a touch of resentment toward Warner Brothers - so much more could have been accomplished with this piece. Anyway, joining Cagney is Pat O'Brien, whose friendship with Cagney in real life comes through in the film. Frank McHugh is good here and more subdued, and Olivia de Haviland's talent wasn't given nearly enough room to really shine. Also, loved the characterization of the mother (tough yet loving), who makes me wonder if she wasn't based, to some degree, on Cagney's own mom. In any case, he shows her lots of affection, endearing viewers to him even more. Good fight scenes near the end. Overall, it's Cagney that makes it worth watching, as always.

    This film is another wonderful tribute to New York City and the wonderful Irish culture..This film is a must for any James Cagney fan...I think it is one of his best films... The team of James Cagney and Pat O'Brien make this film a great comedy/drama....Mary Gordon brings life to her character as "Ma O'Hara"....This film is dripping with family values, irish culture, and everyday folk in New York City..You certainly don't have to be Irish to love this film...How sad that this film is not available on DVD or VHS.
