Based on the short life of Crazy Joe Gallo, with Peter Boyle as the hipster wiseguy and Fred Williamson as his eager associate. It’s almost a civil rights story as Joe tries to integrate the rackets and meets with fierce opposition. Lots of violent action and plenty of excellent character acting with Eli Wallach, Luther Adler, Rip Torn, Paula Prentiss. Can you spot Henry (Fonzie) Winkler as one of the crew? A film with a strong 70s feel, directed by Carlo Lizzani. ----Bring your own popcorn, etc.
