Michael E. Grost Classic Film and Television Low key gangster saga about a crook who's more a brainy con-man than tough guy. Aug 16, 2012 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com David Janssen is miscast in this fictionalized, B-level bio of the Jewish gangster, but the supporting cast is god. Rated: C Feb 25, 2011 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews Plodding biopic. Rated: C Sep 29, 2010 Full Review Read all reviews

Josh G Some stand out scenes in an otherwise dull affair. Mickey Rooney is fine but given not much to do. The rest of the cast is generic. And the script needs a few more drafts with a little bit of action or anything more than hey I have money. The sound design and cinematography is decent. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 03/22/23 Full Review Read all reviews
