While I am not into gangster movies per se....this movie was wonderful. Great performances all round. Neuman was his usual golden self.
And James Garner is the best. Handsome sensitive.....all man. If you are interested in seeing him in another fine movie....rent "Sunset".
He plays an aging Wyatt Earp acting as consultant on a movie set that is doing a story of his life. Bruce Willis as cowboy actor Tom Mix is playing the younger Wyatt Earp in the movie they are filming. Malcom McD. plays the studio head bad guy of course.
Wonderful ensemble of characters.
I guess people with hearing loss don't count. Deaf people must be totally out of the loop too.
