In the opening of "Crazy Joe," Gallo is sitting in a theater watching a black and white film, repeating the dialogue of one character. The film is "Kiss of Death," and the character is Tommy Udo, played by Richard Widmark. This was Widmark's breakout role, the one that made him a star. Joey Gallo is said to have adopted the fictional Tommy Udo as his role model, an example of life imitating art. See more »
In the scene where an artist is using a bridge as the subject of his painting, what he's painting doesn't match the view he has of the bridge. The span of the bridge in the painting goes in the opposite direction of the actual bridge. See more »
Kinda 'Godfather lite', you have seen it all before....
Very trendy c. '74 cast-Eli Wallach, Peter Boyle, Rip Torn, Paula Prentiss, etc. Even has the Fonz as a mob guy. An obvious takeoff of the Godfather, though nowheres near as good. The cast certainly brings this up a notch-Boyle and Wallach especially. I always enjoy seeing Fred 'Blaxploitation film' Williamson in a flick too.
Very dated-check out the boat cars, bellbottems, very '70s '50's fixation-tunes, etc-but worth yer while. Has an interesting run of things it touches on-Attica, Italian 'anti-defamation leagues', etc.
**1/2, see this with 'Donnie Brasco' or 'Friends of Eddie Coyle' to get a better idea of what's what.
