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 »
When the movie starts, the date is Sept. 15, 1960. The men are riding in a car. They begin to sing along with an opera that is playing on the radio. The car arrives at it's destination, a charcoal grill. When they exit the car it is plain to see that the car hasn't even been built yet. It is a 1963 Cadillac Coupe DeVille. See more »
A great little period piece from the mid 70's. It follows the story of "Crazy" Joe Gallo. Peter Boyle is fabulous as Joe and the film also has Eli Wallach,Fred Williamson and Paula Prentiss. Eli Wallach plays a crime boss and steals every scene(as usual)that he is a part of. I think the film is not a "Godfather" ripoff as some have suggested,this film has a totally different feel to it. This is a gritty,hip almost an exploitation feel to it and not just because it has Fred Williamson in a supporting role. Great cars,music,clothes and a great look at the wonderful,colorful time that was the 70's. If you haven't seen this flick,be sure to check it out. Playing now(8-22-09)on Crackle,it is worth a couple hours of your time. If you are a fan of gangster films,70's exploitation films or just good old drama and action,this is one film that you may not have heard of that definitely is worth a look. Peace.
