  1. Smart Money

    Smart Money is an all-talking pre-code drama film produced and distributed by Warner Brothers. The film was directed by Alfred E. Green and stars Edward G. Robinson, Evalyn Knapp, Noel Francis and James Cagney. This proved to be the only time Robinson and Cagney made a movie together. At the time it was filmed, Robinson has already become a well known star while Cagney was still not very well known. Thus Cagney was given only a supporting role in this film. Smart Money was shot after Robinson's signature film Little Caesar had been released and while Cagney's breakthrough film The Public Enemy was also being filmed. The Public Enemy had not yet been released.
