Saturday Cinema: 1 Smart Money

starring Edward G. Robinson James Cagney , Evalyn Knapp
This afternoon's Saturday Cinema affords a rare opportunity to see almost all the Warner Brothers' stars of the 30s and 40s in two films. Edward G. followed up his success as Little Caesar with this film about the rise and fall of a fast-talking small town gambler. Nick the Barber heads for the city to make a killing in the big game but a penchant for blondes proves to be his undoing. James Cagney , making his only screen appearance with Edward G. , plays his assistant.
Based on a story by KUBEC GLASMON and JOHN BRIGHT
Directed by ALFRED e. GREEN

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
