Special Sub-Topic: Classic Gangster Movies, Part 3
|What was the nickname of the Andy Garcia character in the 1995 movie 'Things To Do In Denver When You Are Dead'?|
Jimmy the Saint & Jimmie the Saint & The Saint & Saint. The character considered becoming a priest in his youth, therefore the nickname. He manages to retain some sense of the priestly vocation, even as a criminal.
|Who plays the man with the plan in 'Things To Do In Denver When You Are Dead'?|
Christopher Walken. This character is in a wheelchair, but he has some of the best lines in the movie. He tells the suave and diplomatic Jimmy the Saint, 'You're not a man, you're a waltz.'
|Who played the sorely tempted undercover cop in the 1992 movie 'Deep Cover'?|
Laurence Fishbourne. This underrated movie pulls no punches, and is one of the darkest films ever made in this era.
|Who played the psychotic Dutch Schultz in Francis Ford Coppola's 1984 movie, 'The Cotton Club'?|
James Remar. Remar's portrayal, although it is only a supporting role, is one of the creepiest depictions of a criminal in films. Shades of Widmark's Tommy Udo and Pacino's Tony Montana.
|Which one of these actors NEVER played Al Capone in films?|
Edward G. Robinson. Robards played Al Capone in the 1967 film 'The Saint Valentine's Day Massacre.' Steiger played him in 1958's 'Al Capone', and De Niro played him in the 1987 movie 'The Untouchables'.
