Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia Then Disney head Jeffrey Katzenberg opted to produce this gangster epic instead of Warren Beatty's Bugsy (1991) as he figured Beatty's film was too expensive at forty million dollars. This movie ultimately came in at fifty million dollars, and grossed a mere fifteen million dollars during its American release. See more »
