    Description

    Taxi (Warner Brothers, 1932). CGC Graded Lobby Card (11" X 14").
    An important film in the rise to superstardom of James Cagney, this picture finds the tough guy actor playing Matt Nolan, an independent cab driver who leads a fight against a taxi monopoly that uses rough tactics to take business away from the little guys. This picture is important in that it marks the first time that Cagney dances on screen, in the dance competition scene, and is the source of the oft-misquoted line, "You dirty rat!" (the actual line from the film is, "Come out and take it, you dirty, yellow-bellied rat, or I'll give it to you through the door!") It was also the last time Cagney allowed live ammo to be used in one of his pictures, as he nearly got hit. This great lobby card, with its wonderful image of Cagney, has a light smudge in the top border, two tears in the top border repaired with tape on the reverse, and tiny corner bumps, but is otherwise clean, fresh, and attractive. CGC graded 6.0. Fine.
