The Big Casino

Caught Turner Classic Movies tribute to those in the film industry who left us this past year. Two character actors known for their tough guy image passed away under the radar. Harold J. Stone , although he played all types of roles is most identified as the hard nosed cop and underwold boss. He played Frank Nitti in The St. Valentine's Day Massacre(1967) and did a send-up of his image in the Elvis Preslry film Girl Happy as "Big Frank" and the Jerry Lewis film The Big Mouth . Twilight Zone fans will recognize him as the airline investigator in the episode "The Arrival. Marc Lawrence . The perfect movie gangster. This guy perfected it. You may not recognize the name but you know the face. He was the gangster in the pre-credits sequence of The Man With the Golden Gun ("Hey, Al...) and also was a Vegas gangster in Diamonds Are Forever ("I didn't know there was a pool down there").
