Love Me or Leave Me

Image for Love Me or Leave Me

Dir. Charles Vidor

US 1955 | Colour | 122 mins | Hollywood Classics | Musical

Cast: Doris Day, James Cagney, Cameron Mitchell

Day and Cagney give engrossing and convincing performances in this bitter musical biopic based on the traumatic life of the great torch singer Ruth Etting.

‘Cagney, hovering constantly on the verge of White Heat mania, plays well off Day’s girl-next-door persona, lending a genuinely explosive edge to their relationship… The stream of standards – ‘You Made Me Love You’, ‘Mean to Me’, ‘Shaking the Blues Away’, ‘Ten Cents a Dance’ – are a treat.’ – Time Out

Available on: 35mm
