Kill the Irishman (2011) Poster

Trivia

Danny Greene became such a folk hero in Cleveland that a young admirer penned a ballad in his honor. It reads in part, "...They shot him down and blew him up With most regular persistence. Through guile and luck and skill, Danny Greene is with us still. Some day he'll die, as all we must, Some will laugh but most will cry. His legend will live on for years, To bring his friends mixed pleasure, For he has done both bad and good, And lived his life full measure."
