" My Name is Arthur Flegenheimer "
16 October 2008 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

There are many actors who's talents are made for certain parts. From the very best to the lowly actor, some parts are best suited for others. This is the story of Arthur Flegenheimer, who became the notorious "Dutch Schultz " and made his fortune in Organized Crime in the 1930's. The selection of Vic Morrow as Schultz was a fortunate step for Morrow and for his fans. The rise of this talented, but troublesome individual lent many to believe he was very lucky. His side kick Bo Wetzel played by Norman Alden predicted that so long as they two of them were together, nothing could happen to them. His foresight was better than Shultz' as proved by their historical demise. Joseph Gallison plays Vincent 'Mad Dog' Coll and Ray Danton is dangerous as 'Legs' Diamond. The rise and fall of this brutal gangster is aptly plays for the audience and even if you know the fate of the hood, it's nice to see Morrow at his best in this part. Good film. ***
