Trivia

First of only two ever cinema movies to feature the real-life character of mobster Louis 'Lepke' Buchalter. The second was around six years later with 1981's Gangster Wars (1981). See more »

Goofs

Another example of men's grooming that was much closer to 1975 than to the supposed time frame of the film are the full-brush style mustaches worn by Thomas E. Dewey, as well as by both the Sing Sing executioner and warden. See more »

Tony Curtis provides a convincing performance
23 July 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is one in which Tony Curtis gives one of his best performances as Louis "Lepke" Buchalter. Curtis ,better known for his romantic and comedic roles proved to audiences that he could potray a gangster too, and does a damn good job of it!
