Goofs

When Vincent Coll was killed, he was using a phone booth in the London Chemists drug store at Eighth Avenue and 23rd Street. He was reportedly talking to Owney Madden, who kept Coll on the line while the call could be traced. Soon enough, a limousine pulled up outside. While Bo Weinberg waited behind the wheel, Leonard Scarnici and Anthony Fabrizzo stepped out. One of them waited outside and the other walked inside. After telling the cashier to "Keep cool, now", the killer withdrew a Thompson submachine gun from under his overcoat and went back to the phone booth where Coll was. The gunman opened fire, raking up one side of the glass booth and down the other. A total of fifteen bullets were dug out of Vincent Coll's body at the morgue; even more may have passed clean through him. The killers were chased unsuccessfully up Eighth Avenue by a detective squad that had pulled up just after Coll was killed. (For some reason, the film instead shows the police trapping and killing Coll in the phone booth after he fires at them with a Tommy Gun.) See more »

i thought it was a good movie
17 May 2005 | by mejicojohnSee all my reviews

I see no reason for whining about being inaccurate. Has anyone seen a movie lately that was accurate? For that matter has anyone seen a news broadcast that is accurate? I found this inaccurate movie very entertaining. I only gave it a 7 because i saw the movie many years ago and maybe it wasn't quite as good as i thought it was then. probably not, but i did switch brands of cigarettes to chesterfield kings for about 6 months, i don't guess i have to mention non-filtered as i don't believe any chesterfield cigarettes were filtered at the time. and yes, i do find stupid movies entertaining, i saw another about a blue butterfly, many years later, cant remember the name of it and have looked for it in vain. i have not seen many movies where the actor actually looked like the person he was portraying unless perhaps it was abraham lincoln. i have seen various actors portray mad dog, and the one in this movie is the closest my mind could picture as looking like him. who really cares anyway. its not like you have to identify him in court.
