He Was Her Man

He Was Her Man

Directed by Lloyd Bacon • 1934 • United States
Starring James Cagney, Joan Blondell, Victor Jory

For their final screen pairing, Joan Blondell and James Cagney left behind the lighthearted comedy of their six earlier outings together for a decidedly darker tale of crime and doomed romance. Made during the waning days of the pre-Code era, HE WAS HER MAN casts Cagney as Flicker Hayes, a mobster recently sprung from jail with two hit men on his tail, who joins up with Rose (Blondell), a destitute ex–sex worker also in dire straits. Together, the desperate pair hide out in a small fishing village and wait for fate to catch up with them.
