I and my 1929 Hudson where extras in this movie and Road to perdition. My time in the Pullman hotel was pretty cool.Actually got to do a little acting but ended up on the cutting room floor.It sounds like fun but really boring.
Extra's in the union station scene (Untouchables)

Waiting to go as back round (untouchables)

My wife was not very good with the camera.
Took forever to find the pictures

This is one of the best threads I've read in a while. Smile

I wonder how many members have passed this thread by because they think it's about a Brian DePalma film?

That's cool. I liked that movie a lot. Costner was somewhat stiff but Connery's acting made up for it.

Awesome picture.

"The Constable."

A nickname from Sean Connery. You sir, are the most interesting man in the world. Screw that dude on the Does Equis commercials.

Not bad for a Jersey boy!

Congrats on the CUT.




There are, it has been said, two types of people in the world. There are those who, when presented with a glass that is exactly half full, say: this glass is half full. And then there are those who say: this glass is half empty. The world belongs, however, to those who can look at the glass and say: What's up with this glass? Excuse me? Excuse me? This is my glass? I don't think so. My glass was full! And it was a bigger glass!

That was the last movie I saw at the Columbia Theatre in Atlanta (the only 88mm theater at the time). The slow motion scene in the train station on the stairwell still gives me chills to this day!

At first when I looked at that picture I thought the production designed REALLY screwed up continuity

lmao

That is a great keepsake and quite possibly one of the best 30's era gangster movies ever made. I rank it right up with modern gangster movies like "The Departed"

Great movie and a heck of a cast, like Sean Connery with this line as Malone: "Isn't that just like a wop? Brings a knife to a gun fight."

Still sounds cool even if you were bored.
