It is explained in the film that the reason ballplayer Harry Simpson got the nickname "Suitcase" was that he was often traded in the major leagues. This is incorrect. He actually picked up the nickname while still playing in the Negro League. Harry wore a size 13 shoe, and a sportswriter dubbed him "Suitcase" Simpson, based on a character by that name with feet as large as suitcases, in the comic strip "Toonerville Folks." A cartoon appeared in the paper showing Harry with feet as long as a bed. See more »
This is the third in the Jesse Stone movie series and I thought it was the best. Selleck is just perfect as the flawed, but honorable main character. What makes this series so good is what others have written; the pacing of the films is thoughtful; the characters are adult and complex; it has plot and intelligence over car crashes and special effects though it has action and romance in it to be sure. You like Selleck's character instantly and his scenes with his other officers,the State Police Detective and the shrink he see's about his drinking, are all terrific.
In the special features on Stone Cold Selleck says people have a 'hunger' for this type of adult entertainment where plot and story are more important than rapid fire visuals--and that is so true. It's surprising how good this series is--it's way better than 95% of what's in the theaters. Tom Selleck in a really good cop movie or Pirates of the Caribbean part IV--it's no contest.
