Terrible Joe Moran is a 1984 American made-for-television drama film directed by Joseph Sargent and starring James Cagney in his final film, Art Carney,[1] and Ellen Barkin. The film, about an aging ex-boxer (Cagney) who needs to use a wheelchair for mobility, won an Emmy Award in 1984.[2] Clips from Cagney's 1932 boxing picture Winner Take All were used to illustrate the character's earlier career. Reportedly, impressionist Rich Little dubbed much -- if not all -- of the Cagney dialog, as the stroke afflicted actor slurred his words and the decision was made to replace his voice with that of Little doing a Cagney impersonation.
