“Let me tell you something, darling, I was TRAWEmatized! When they stuck that gun at you I thought: There’ gonna kill us! I’m gonna be dead! And MILTON is coming to the Waldorf soon!” One of the all time perfect films. Hysterically funny, touching, clever, good music, Gordon Willis’ otherworldy photography, fantastic sets and costumes, Jewish humor, Italian humor, great NYC (and NJ) locations. This movie did mob comedy decades before the Sopranos. “Angelina, might I interject a new concept at this juncture?”
