The Greatest Motion Picture Ever Made

“…when awakened by newsboy’s cry…”

I always show this to students and friends and anybody who passes my door. Everybody always gets a big kick out of it (study the editing — it must have been cut by somebody who WASN’T LOOKING).

And yet, when I say to them “Someday I would like to make a film as good as this,” they look at me in a strange way.

(From the extras on the Warners DVD of LITTLE CAESAR.)

  4. Words as true today as they were then.

  5. I want to watch it over and over again. Yet at the same time I wish I’d never seen it. The mark of true greatness.
