When "Lucky" Luciano and the others bring in "Mad Dog" Coll to offer him a chance to move to California, they get into a discussion about Coll's style of killing, to which Coll slaps "Bugsy" Siegel on the knee and laughs out "There's nothing so pretty as the back of a man's head!" Ironically, when Bugsy Siegel was murdered in 1947, he was shot through the back of the head. See more »
The Internal Revenue Service is mentioned twice as having
investigated income tax evasion. Before 1953 the IRS was the "Bureau of Internal Revenue"; it was changed to Internal Revenue Service to emphasize "service" to taxpayers. See more »
I must say, I don't really agree with what most other people have to say about this movie. I must admit it has its ups and downs, especially when it comes to the casting. Casting Christian Slater as Lucky Luciano was just ridiculous. He is just so the wrong type. He is a good actor, but this part does not suit him at all! It is a different story for several other people. I must say I was very impressed with the performances of Richard Grieco and Lara Flynn Boyle. Richard clearly shows he can do a lot more than just being the pretty boy. He was probably the best choice for the part. Violent and sensual. He even manages to do a quite funny scene, when his character gets angry, because someone tells him he does not kill with style. I did not know what to expect from him, as I had only seen him in "21 Jump Street", but give him a chance, because he will not disappoint you. Lara Flynn Boyle's performance is wonderful. Too bad her part was so small, as I would have loved to see more of her in this movie. She shows here clearly she can do so much more than cheap comedies. Usually I would give this film 8 out of 10, but because of Richard and Lara, I will make it 9.
