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!
