Flashbacks trace Cohan's rise, from a child performing in his family's vaudeville act to his early days as a struggling Tin Pan Alley songwriter, to his overwhelming success as an actor, writer, director and producer known for patriotic songs like "Yankee Doodle Dandy," "You're a Grand Old Flag" and "Over There." 1942 Black and White 2 hrs. 6 min.
