Okay, so I could only come up with one... The scene in The Public Enemy where James Cagney smashes a grapefruit into Mae Clark's face has to be one of the most iconic scenes in movie history. I'm serious, I'd actually love to do a series of paintings from films where a grapefruit is a part of the storyline. The only other film I can come up with is an Edward Everett Horton film in which his character complains continually throughout the film that every time he eats a grapefruit it squirts him in the eye. I can't think of the name of the film, though, so I'm at a loss.. any suggestions?
And it's time to wish one of my top favorite actors a "Happy Birthday!" To read my previous posts on the inimitable James Cagney, click here.
