ABOUT THE MOVIE:
In the mid 80’s, this was the movie! Loaded with great actors who we all knew when we saw them but many of their names escaped up. Actors like Val Avery, Jack Kehoe, M. Emmet, Walsh, Geraldine Page who was nominated for am Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress along with a very young versions of Frank Vincent along with Darryl Hannah coming off of Splash.
Stars include Mickey Rourke, Kenneth McMillan, Burt Young and Eric Roberts.
Geraldine Page was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her two-scene role.
This film was originally planned as the first on-screen pairing of actors Robert De Niro and Al Pacino, with De Niro playing Charlie and Pacino playing Paulie.
Michael Cimino was initially slated to direct the movie. After Rourke and Roberts signed on as the leads, Cimino wanted to make some changes in the screenplay however, the rewriting would have taken Cimino beyond the mandated start date for shooting, so Cimino and MGM parted ways.
The movie only did a little over 6.5 million dollars at the box office but has since become a huge cult favorite.
