I remember when they tried to blow him up at the Tony Roma's on Sahara Ave. That place has memories for me too. I was eating dinner with a co-worker and he had a stroke there.

The craps high roller is Ali Pirouzkar the former manager of Bernini at Caesars Forum Shops. He dresses just like that with those glasses in real life, and lives in Australia last I was in contact with him.



And the guy who stands next to DeNiro is now retired Director of Table Games at a couple of former Wynn casinos, Ritchie Amalfitano. Ritchie is the one who directed DeNiro on the finer aspects of the gaming industry, including when DeNiro tells the dealer to "place the checks properly" at the craps table.


Ritchie had no lines though, just stood there most of the time, and was offed at the end.

One of the best movies ever made IMO. There are so many incredible scenes. Some graphic violence though

I just watched it again last night

I was amazed that Joe Pesci actually nailed it as a kick ass tough guy - he's so small - 5'4" - what a great actor

in some movies he plays a wimpy guy

in the movie he was whaling on some guy's head and I noticed how little his arms looked

in the movie, Nicky is banned and opens a legit restaurant and gives it to his brother to run

they show somebody, I think his brother - wrapping up a sub for a customer - before he finishes with it he spits in the sub

I've never seen that in a movie before - but it reminded me of my very first job while in h.s. as a waiter

and my customer, an old lady - asked me this: "do the cooks spit in the food__? - I've heard that they do"___________________________(~:/
