TCM Guest Programmer May 2016: Matthew Broderick

Today being the last day of the month, we're finally getting to the Guest Programmer for the month: Matthew Broderick. He sat down with Robert Osborne some months back obviously, considering how long Osborne has been absent from TCM. (We'll see if Osborne is back tomorrow; supposedly he's going to be back in June.) As always, Guest Programmers select four of their favorite movies. Broderick's selections are:

Doorway to Hell at 8:00 PM, a gangster movie made interesting by a supporting roles from James Cagney at the very beginning of his career (this is even before The Public Enemy);
Breaking Away at 9:30 PM, a cycling movie I've never really been able to get into;
The 400 Blows at 11:30 PM, Fran├žois Truffaut's classic about youth alienation; and
Yankee Doodle Dandy at 1:30 AM, with James Cagney playing George M. Cohan.
