Storyline

An exploration of certain conspiracy theories surrounding the JFK assassination from Jack Ruby's perspective. Ruby owns a run-down strip club in Dallas, and does what he can for credibility, both by giving information to the FBI and by doing the odd favor for his mafia contacts. When hitman Action Jackson is hit, Louie Vitali asks him to help get crime boss Santos out of a Cuban jail. When they get back, the bosses take his headliner Candy Cane under their wing to develop her career in Vegas. A mysterious government man named Maxwell expresses his displeasure to Ruby over his Cuban activities. Slowly all the pieces of a massive conspiracy begin to emerge to Ruby, who can do nothing to stop it. Written by Ed Sutton <esutton@mindspring.com>

Trivia

Publicity for this picture from the filmmakers declared that the movie was "speculative fiction." See more »

Goofs

The assassination sequence portrays, as a number of films do, live TV pictures of the motorcade. There was no live TV coverage and much the footage shown in the film as "live" was first broadcast on the evening of November 22, 1963 as it had been filmed earlier that day. See more »

Quotes

Sheryl Ann DuJean: [to Ruby] I'm Candy Cane, fresh out of nowhere. An hour ago you billed me as Las Vegas hot sauce. Tomorrow you headline me as a virgin schoolgirl from Carolina. I'm whatever you say.

Ruby
29 June 1999 | by Coxer99See all my reviews

Disappointing film about Jack Ruby, the man who gunned down Lee Harvey Oswald with Aiello giving his all for the title character, but even his talents cannot save the tedious script.
