Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye (1950 film)
Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye (1950) is a film noir directed by Gordon Douglas based on the novel by Horace McCoy. Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye was banned in Ohio as "a sordid, sadistic presentation of brutality and an extreme presentation of crime with explicit steps in commission."
Supporting Cagney are Luther Adler as a crooked lawyer, Ward Bond and Barton MacLane as two crooked cops, and Cagney's brother William (who produced the film) as Ralph Cotter's brother.
James Cagney plays Ralph Cotter, a career criminal who escapes from prision, then murders his partner in crime. Along they way he attempts to woo his ex partner's sister (Barbara Payton) by threatening to expose her role in his escape. Cotter quickly gets back into the crime business only to be shook down by local corrupt cops.
"He's too smart for you!"
"Oh no, he stopped being smart when he took my money."
