Trivia

The opening scene, in which John Rubin (Robert De Niro) is shown around his crummy new apartment by the landlord (Charles Durning), is a parody of a then-contemporary TV public service announcement for the New York Urban Coalition, in which a similarly slimy landlord shows off a dilapidated apartment to a black man. The movie scene follows the commercial rather closely, and both De Niro and the unnamed black renter accept the apartment with the same words: "I'll take it." The commercial, however, is in black and white. (The public service campaign, entitled "Give A Damn", was also responsible for the same-named 1969 hit single by the pop group Spanky & Our Gang.)

Too hip for 1970
30 November 1999 | by See all my reviews

This movie has the distinction of being too hip even for the hippest period in American movies. (It wasn't the underground hit it deserved to be.) Full of guerrilla street theater and put-ons, and featuring a very young Robert De Niro going through lighting-fast comedy routines, it's an amazing document of the era. Remarkable the number of great actors De Palma discovered--with De Niro at the top of the list.
