A retrospective of the Oscar-winner's films – including White Heat and The Public Enemy – will be shown at the Glasgow Film Festival 2013, from February 14 to February 24.

The Cagney tribute follows on from this year's Gene Kelly retrospective.

James Cagney: Top Of The World, Ma! includes Angels With Dirty Faces, The Roaring Twenties and Love Me Or Leave Me.

Festival co-director Allan Hunter said: "James Cagney is one of the Hollywood greats whose work has stood the test of time.

"His dynamic presence came to define the great cycle of gangster films that Warner Brothers made in the 1930s and 1940s and audiences will love the chance to savour some of those all-time classics on the big screen."

The big-screen appeal of video games will also be a focus during the event.

Burnistoun star Robert Florence will host the video games strand Game Cats Go Miaow!, from the point of view of the gamers.

Programme highlights include Rab's Video Game Empty – a chat and gaming show. Florence said: "I want this to be a games festival for gamers."

Another focus for the festival is the new cinema from emerging superpower Brazil.

For Buena Onda: New Brazilian Cinema, the programme includes Xingu, Prime Time Soap and Neighbouring Sounds.

With more than 350 events, Glasgow Film Festival 2012 was the fastest-growing film event in the country.
