Trivia

Publicity for this picture reported that it was the first screen villainous role of unrelenting villainy for actor and star Tony Curtis. See more »

Goofs

As he eats his last meal (while receiving a visit from Robert Kane), Lepke drinks from a water glass. No prison would have permitted such a breach of security, particularly for a condemned man in his final hours, because of the potential use of broken glass as a weapon of suicide or homicide.

Quotes

Lepke: You know, we could do with better movies. How about a nice love story or something, instead of this gangster shit?

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!
