Trivia

Ben Gazzara and Harry Guardino were long-time good friends and would spend a lot of their scenes deliberately trying to out act each other for a laugh, much to director Steve Carver's frustration. See more »

Goofs

Al Capone's scar was not caused by broken glass from a window but a knife wound in an argument between him and Frank Gallucio over a remark he made to Gallucio's sister Lena at the Harvard Inn on Coney Island in 1917. See more »

Several reviewers have mentioned that this movie is hard to find. It is currently available on HULU.COM. Unfortunately you have to watch a few commercials, but the good news is that the copy is excellent. The characters are well developed and the pace is quick. While I would not say that the plot is overly realistic, it is worth watching. If you are looking for an engrossing, albeit brutal, diversion then this is the fare for you. Definitely NOT FOR CHILDREN. One of Sylvester Stallone first movie appearance and well acted by him. The other characters offer excellent performances as well. You will recognize many character actors in this ensemble cast. Hope you all enjoy this nearly classic mob movie.
