Trivia

When Don Faranzano (His name was Maranzano in real life) is introducing his underbosses at the banquet where he announces himself as the "Boss of all bosses", he names the underbosses as "Lucky" Luciano, Joe Bonnano, Joe Profaci, Vincent Mangano, and Thomas Gagliano. After Lucky orchestrated the death of Faranzano/Maranzano in real life, the five underbosses became the heads of the individual "Five Families" of organized crime in New York. Eventually, through the years of succession, the Luciano family became the Genovese Family. The Mangano Family became the Gambino Family. The Gagliano family became the Luchese Family. And the Profaci Family became the Columbo Family. Only the Bonnano Family retained the name of it's original leader. See more »

Goofs

Quotes

Lucky: [after being set up by Don Faranzano and surviving] ... When Tommy Reina went with Faranzano, Don Masseria made Tommy pay a price: me.
[to Lansky]
Lucky: ... Meyer, from now on, you and me gotta agree. So if I start getting a swelled head, just shoot me. It'd be a lot less painful.

10 June 2002 | by martymasterSee all my reviews

This is a good mafia movie,with good story telling,good acting and good atmosphere.I really enjoy mafia movies,and therefore I think this movie is underrated.The story is not unlike other mafia movies,about robbing each other and killing everyone in the way,but off course with class. Highly underrated,good movie.
