While being nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress, Geraldine Page was on-screen for only 8 minutes. When Page was Oscar nominated for this film, she became the first woman to receive seven nominations without a win, a feat also achieved by actors Richard Burton and Peter O'Toole. Page would finally win an Oscar on her eighth nomination the next year for The Trip to Bountiful (1985). See more »

Not your typical mobster movie, the Pope of Greenwich Village does have a good Sinatra soundtrack. The cool style that was 1984 is showcased in this movie. The hair styles, the clothes, the music, even the cool walk is present in this movie. One of Eric Roberts best movies, his acting is second to none as the fast talking, fast walking, and scared out of his mind side kick / cousin to Mickey Rourke. The "thumb scene" alone is timeless. It is both scary and funny, most movies can't produce a scene with as much realism as "Charlie....they took my thumb. Overall, the Pope of Greenwich Village is a comedy, but at times, it is dramatic and as serious as a heart attack. A classic for the 80's, sit back and enjoy Rourke, Roberts, Young and Hannah when they were on top of the world...and on top of Hollywood.
