After Supreme Court, MGM Settles 'Raging Bull' Rights Dispute

5 April 2015 12:23 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

The U.S. Supreme Court might have revived a long-running dispute over rights to Martin Scorsese's classic film Raging Bull, but the parties involved in the battle have figured out a way to hang up their gloves. On Friday, a federal judge was informed that a settlement had been reached. Paula Petrella, whose father, Frank Petrella, wrote works that became the basis of the 1980 film starring Robert De Niro as real-life boxer Jake Lamotta, sued MGM and 20th Century Fox for copyright infringement over the continued distribution of the motion picture.

#10. Chinatown (1974)

Lost to: The Godfather Part II

Well, no one will argue that it should have won, but still. Roman Polanski’s film made a true leading man out of Jack Nicholson. It grabbed eleven nominations, only taking home one. That being said, that one was for Original Screenplay, written by Robert Towne, which may be the greatest even written.

It’s just a shame it ran into the greatest movie sequel of all time.
