Did You Know?


The closing credits track, "My Man," was originally written in 1916, but became a huge hit in 1921, the year in which the events of this episode are set. Fanny Brice recorded a top-selling version of the song that year. See more »


In the close up of the gramophone in Van Alden's apartment, the record being played (a 78 speed) was spinning much too slow, more like a 33 1/3 record -- which would not be available until 1948. See more »

When the Chips Are Down in 2.3 ***
10 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's time for calling in all political favors when the chips are down for Mr. Nucky. Mrs. Schroeder proves her weight much more than the usual mistress.

I just love N's spurned ex-girlfriend. She is giving a terrific performance, not only as a spurned lover, but as the very much pregnant, desolate woman being kept by that agent. Al Jolson's recordings play on as she laments her faith. If she keeps this up, this should pave the way for a supporting Emmy nomination at the next award ceremony in a year from now.

Jimmy shows that he can still be the fatherly type while totally immersed in the rackets.
