Scarface Script - Dialogue Transcript

Voila! Finally, the Scarface script is here for all you quotes spouting fans of the Howard Hawks movie with Paul Muni.  This script is a transcript that was painstakingly transcribed using the screenplay and/or viewings of Scarface. I know, I know, I still need to get the cast names in there and I'll be eternally tweaking it, so if you have any corrections, feel free to drop me a line. You won't hurt my feelings. Honest.

Scarface Script





That's the most I got is     

bottle of creme de menthe.



You got things pretty much your

own way now, haven't you, Louie?



Sure. Everything is just fine.



Well, that's good, but Pete

was saying just tonight...



Ah.! He say that the South Side,

she's get outta line.



I say, what are we gonna do

with the South Side?



Let some of the other boys get

theirs too. I got all I want.



Johnny Lovo, he's talkin'

about starting something.



Yeah? He's lookin'

for trouble, eh?



Johnny's very foolish.

Look at me.



A man always gotta know

whether he's got it or not.



I got plenty. I got

house. I got automobile.



I got nice girl.



I got stomach trouble too.



Better get some sleep

here. All right, boys.



Well, she was a pretty

good party, eh?



Next week, I'm going

to give a party...



which the boys have never

seen nothing like it before.



We'll have much more music, much

more girls, much more everything.



Everybody should say, "Ah! Big Louie,

he sit on top of the world!" Eh?



Good-bye, Louie.



Good-bye, boys. Take-a good

"careful" of yourself, eh?



All right.

I see you some more.



Hello. I want

Lakeside     please.



Yeah.     Lakeside.




That's the wrong num...

No. I want Lakeside    .



Hello, Louie.



All right.




Copy boy here.!



Copy boy.!



That's rotten!



"Costillo Slaying

Starts Gang War. "



That's what I want. I'm

workin' on that angle now.



I've got four men on it. Four?

You'll need    men on this story...



for the next five years.



You know what's happening?



This town is up for the grabs.

Get me?



You know, Costillo was the last

of the old-fashioned gang leaders.



There's a new crew coming out, and every

guy that's got money enough to buy a gun...



is gonna try to step

into his place.



You see? They'll be shooting each other like

rabbits for the control of the booze business.



You get it?

It'll be just like war.



That's it... war.

You put that in the lead.



War. "Gang war. "



Here come the coppers.



Hello, Rinaldo.

You coming along?



Where's Camonte?



Hello, Guarino.

Come on.



What's your hurry?

I'm gettin' a massage too.



We'll finish that

at headquarters.



Put your coat on.



I got lotsa time.



Who wants to see me?

The chief.



That kidney foot? Never

mind the jokes. Come on.



Hey, how's it look

in the back? Hmm?



Very good.






Come on, you rat!



Come on!



"Tony Camonte,

alias... Joe Black.



"Assault, carrying brass knuckles

and sap, DW, disturbing peace,



"street robbery on three counts,

loft burglary, violation Volstead Act.



"Indicted for murder

of Buck Kempner.



"Member Five Points Gang.

Came from New York,     .



At present, bodyguard and

strong arm for Louie Costillo. "



Bodyguard for Costillo, eh?

Pretty smart boy.



I suppose you didn't kill

Louie Costillo. Who, me?



That's very funny.



Big Louie and me,

we're like this.



Can I slap it out of him,




I'll let you have him

in a little while, Ben.



This fella got ideas

I don't like.



Costillo hired you for a bodyguard.

Where were you at the shootin'?



I was havin'

my beauty sleep.




In a lady's house.



You want her name?

Phone number?



- She's very nice.

- We'll go into your alibis later.



You been hangin' around

Johnny Lovo, haven't you?



Lovo split with Big Louie.



What are you doing

at Lovo's house last week?



Now, listen, Tony.

I'm gonna give you a chance.



You play ball with me,

and I'll play ball with you.



Last night, you metJohnny

in Spinelli's Barber Shop.



What'd he give you money for?



Now, listen, you. What

kinda mug you think I am?



I don't know nothin', I don't see

nothin' and I don't hear nothin'.



And when I do,

I don't tell a cop.



- You understand?

- All right, Guarino, you can have him.






Come on, Tony. We'll take

a look at the goldfish.



Here's Epstein.



Hi, boys.

Hello, Chief.



All right,

let's have it.



Writ of habeas corpus for the release

ofTony Camonte and Guino Rinaldo.



Who gave it to you?




All right, gentlemen,

see ya later.



Hey, I-I don't go with this guy? No.



Listen to me. You come into this town and

you think you're headed somewhere, don't you?



You think you're gonna get there

with a gun, but you're not. Get me?



You know why? Because you got $    

bills pasted right across your eyes.



And someday you're gonna stumble

and fall down in the gutter,



right where the horses have been

standin'... right where you belong.



Hmm. You've got me

all figured out, huh?



I've spent my life mixin' with your

breed, and I don't like it. Get me?



You can hide behind a lot

of red tape, crooked lawyers,



politicians with the "gimmes," writs of

habeas corpus, witnesses that don't remember,



but we'll get through to you

just like we got all the rest.



Oh, maybe me, I'm

different. No, you're not.



Take your gun away and get you in

a tough spot, and you'll squeal...



like all the other rats.



You're gonna get me, eh?

In your particular case,



I'd give up a month's pay

for the job.



Are you gonna see Lovo?

Yeah. Right away.



Tell him to stay under

cover. I'll come up tomorrow.



Hey, what's this writ

you got me out on?



Habeas corpus... " deliver the body.

" Can't hold you without booking you.



No matter what they think

you've done. That's a fine idea.



You tell Flemming

I want lots of them.



Hi, boss. Come in, Tony. Glad to see ya.



Hey. That's

pretty hot.




Expensive, huh?



I see that Epstein got

to you in time. Yeah.



He's a nice little fella. They

give him a writ of hocus pocus.



Sit down.




He said, " You stay here till

the heat's off. " He said...



Hey. That's pretty hot.

That's Poppy.



Hey, Poppy.

Meet Tony Camonte.









How are the coppers taking it? Huh?

Oh, I didn't pay much attention.



What about the newspapers?

Yeah. I bring 'em along.



The News has got

the best story.



Pictures of you

and one of me too.



Huh! Where'd they run it,

in the razor ads?



Huh? Oh, that.



That's an old business.

You'll get used to that.



I got it in the war.



War... with a blond

in a Brooklyn speakeasy.



Some kidder, huh?



It takes a long time

with the pincher's, huh?



You've got an office for this sort of

thing, Johnny. Why don't you use it?



There you are, Tony.

That's a bonus.



Hey, that's a nice feel.

That was a fine job, Tony.



Remember, that's only chicken feed.

You've stepped into big company.



You stick to me and do

what I say, play square,



you'll be walkin' around

with lace pants and a gold hat.



You know what I mean?

Sure, I know.



Now, listen, I'm gonna cut you in on a

percentage. Give you a raise... double.



The South Side is rollin' in jack.

All we gotta do is step in and take it.



Yeah, and have some fun

with O'Hara too, huh?



Who? Now wait a minute. O'Hara's

too big a guy to buck now.



There's lots of jack

on the North Side.



Now listen, you.

You let me think up the ideas.



I'll take care of that big hop

in my own way when the time comes.



I say we stay out of the North

Side. I say we leave O'Hara alone.



And what I say goes.

Don't ever forget that.



You're the boss.

That's better.



From now on, next to me, the

boys take orders from you.



Yeah, me and you, huh?

That's fine talk, boss.



Here. Have a cigar. There'll

be plenty of work for everybody.



Costillo slowed down too much. Yeah.



And now he come

to a dead stop.



Here. You'd better

smoke one of mine.



Mmm. That's pretty nice. Expensive, huh?



I don't like cigar smoke

in my room. Do you mind?



Listen, I'm gonna hold off that

meeting with the boys a couple of days.



After Big Louie's funeral, it's

better. You know what I mean?



Hmm? Oh, yeah. Sure, sure.

It don't look so good.



And I want you to send some flowers...

a cross of white carnations from me, see?



Yeah, and I send

lotsa purple bunch.



Big Louie, he always

liked purple.



Why don't you go

and do it now?



You'd better

make that meetin' Monday.



Tell all the guys that want to run

beer on the South Side to be there.



Tell 'em I'm gonna make a

speech. Know what I mean? Mm-hmm.



Well, good-bye, Poppy.

See ya again.



She don't like anybody but me. Mm-hmm.



She's a very busy girl.



Expensive, huh?



Here you are, Little Boy.

Easy dough, huh,



for just standing outside

and listenin' to a gun go off?



Cinch. When are we gonna get

some more? We'll get plenty.



There's business just waitin' for

some guy to come and run it right.



And I got ideas. We're

workin' for Lovo, ain't we?



Lovo. Who's Lovo? Just some guy who's a little

bit more smart than Big Louie. That's all.



Hey, that guy is soft. I

could just see it in his face.



He's got a setup, that's all,

and we gotta wait.



Someday I'm gonna run

the whole works.



Yeah? Remember, those monkeys

on the North Side ain't so soft.



Oh, yeah? Say, they're

satisfied, ain't they?



Why didn't they come and

take Big Louie before we did?



Listen, Little Boy.



In this business, there's only one law

you gotta follow to keep outta trouble.



Do it first, do it yourself

and keep on doin' it.






Where's Cesca?



Oh, I don't know.

She go out.



What do you mean? Ain't

she comin' home for dinner?




Hey, I don't like that.



You tell her I want she should

come home for dinner.



Understand? Sure. I tell her lotsa time.



"Come home. Come home.

Tony no like. "



But she don't...



That's a nice way I catch ya,

huh? What do you mean, "catch me"?



I wasn't doin' nothin'.

You was kissin' him.



Sure. What of it?

Well, I don't like it.



You're missin' lots of fun. Listen, I don't

want anyone kissin' my sister. Understand?



You're hurtin' my arm! I don't want

anybody puttin' their hands on you!



What do you think you're

doing? I'm your brother.



You don't act it. You act

more like... I don't know.



Sometimes I think... I don't care

what you think. You do what I say.



Sure, and never have any fun. Oh, "never

have any fun. " You call that fun, huh?



Runnin' around with guys

like that. That's "fun. "



Listen, you want

real fun, huh?



Here. How's that?



Gee, Tony! Where'd you get it? Never mind

where I got it. You just spend it, see?



Tony, you're swell.



Go on.

Get ready for dinner.



And remember,

you do what I say.



No more fellas,




What for you wanna

give her money, huh?



Ma, she's just a kid.

She wants to have fun.



Yeah? Sometime,

I think you crazy.






What for you take that money,

huh? Because I want it. That's why.



Give it back.

It's bad money.



Tony no got it in no good way.

It gonna bring you lotsa trouble.



What do I care where he gets it? There's

nothing wrong with his giving it to me.



Tony wants me to have a good

time. Oh, yes? You listen!



Tony no love you

like he make you believe.



All the time,

he smile on top,



but what he thinks...

Oh, he's got lotsa tricks.



He no give money to nobody for

nothing. He would to his sister.



Sister. Huh!

That make no difference.



To him, you're just

another girl.



Someday when he need you, he

mix you up in his business...



just like anyone else, and he's

gonna make you bad like him.



He can't make me do

anything I don't want to.



I'm gonna live my own life.

I can take care of myself.



Yeah? All the time,

Tony say like that.



Afterward, he no

belong to me no more.



He's-a no good,



and now you start to be

just like him.



No, I'm not.

Don't worry about me.



I'll get along

all right.






Thank you.

Thank you.



That's all right, boys. Just

changin' the name on the door.



Meet the new president...

Johnny Lovo.



Hiya, boys.



Where's Berdini,

Zeigler, Meehan?



Anybody see 'em?

I did.



They ain't comin'.

Is that all they said?



- They said you could take a flyin'...

- Okay, okay.



Now we know

where they stand.



All right, you guys, I'm

makin' a speech. Here it is.



Big Louie gets a wad of dough,

and then he gets soft.



He lets you guys come

into the South Side and run beer.



Well, I'm gonna change it, see?

You can still stay in,



but, from now on,

you're operatin'the way I say.



Are you askin' us

or telling us?



I'm tellin' ya. We're gonna get

organized, and I'm gonna handle the works.



It's gonna mean twice as much dough

for everybody and half as much trouble.



- You got somethin' figured out, Johnny?

- Everything.



Not being able to get it's gonna

make this town thirstier than ever.



Runnin' beer ain't a nickel game anymore. It's

a business. I'm gonna run it like a business.



Swell. We've been cuttin' each

other's throats long enough.



There are      saloons on the South Side...

half a million customers. Figure that out.



Add up what they're gonna lay on the line

every year for drinks, and nobody in charge.



- So you're going to be it.

- Yeah, it. That's me.



I make my own beer,

and I got my own trucks.



I don't have to go

into business with nobody.



Where you goin'?

Who wants to know?



You sit down here, and don't

interrupt the president no more.



All right, President.



Well, are the rest

of you guys in or out?



- What about Meehan?

- Yeah. Berdini and Zeigler?



Why, they been sellin' to

        joints between them.



Yeah? Well, from now on, they're

out. Those joints buy from us.



Sure. If you try to sell

at one of those places,



Meehan'll turn this side of the

town into a shootin' gallery.



Fine. Anything he starts,

we'll finish.



You guys don't have to worry.

All you gotta do is to haul beer.



Yeah? Well, who's gonna stick his

neck in those joints to get the orders?



- My friend Tony Camonte.

- Yeah. I'm what he call "a good salesman. "



Hey, I start right now

to get orders, hey, boss?



All you can get. Go to it. Hey.



Dope, got a pencil?



Oh, boys, I don't write.



That's one.

Come on.



Come on, Little Boy.




Here, have your beer.



Hey! What is this?

Let go of me, will ya?



What do ya want?

Let go of me.



Let go! What's the idea? Come on.



Say, what's the big idea?

Sit down.



Who you buyin' your beer

from? Meehan and Berdini.



How many barrels a day? Three.



He's lyin', Tony.

He's been takin' five.



Chiseler. Well, you're

gettin' eight now, see?



And you're buyin' from us...

Johnny Lovo. But, listen...



Sit down. I can't use

eight barrels around here.



I'll get ya a hunk of

soap. You take a bath in it.



What are you payin' a barrel? Fifty.



Well, ours is   .

It's better.



You get delivery tomorrow. What

am I gonna tell Meehan and Berdini?



We'll take care of them.

Don't worry.



Well, that's

order number one.



Now we get plenty more. There's

a system to these things.



How many barrels

did you say you wanted?







Well, you're gettin'   .



You're gettin' a delivery




There's no use arguin' with this

joint. Zeigler runs it himself.



Step on it!



Hi, boss.



Mm! Lotsa garlic.



Get me some too.



Well, how's business? You get

some more orders? Lotsa orders.



They all buy from us.

All we have to do is fill 'em.



Yeah. That's a good idea. You

better tell Meehan and Berdini.



Oh, them fellas, they retired from

business. What have you been doin'?



You remember you say all they have to

do is start something, we finish it?



Well, did ya?



About an hour ago. Hey!

Hey, kid. Come here.



Extra here!

Hey! Keep the change.



All right. Thanks.

Here you are, boss.



There's your South Side, all nailed

up in a box. All nailed up in...



Yeah, well, you didn't get the lid

on very tight. What do you mean?



Look at that.



Come on. Hey, keep this hot.

We'll be back for it.



You can't come in here.!

Get outta here.!



This is a private

hospital! You can't...






Oh! What

did they do?



Hiya, Poppy.




Hey, what's all the time

bitin' you? You afraid of me?



Well, that outfit's enough

to give anybody the yips.



Nice, huh? I got three

more... different colors.



I see you're goin' in for jewelry.

It's kind of effeminate, isn't it?



Huh? Yeah.

I got 'em at an auction.



A bargain.



You sure are

a funny mixture, Tony.



That's the first time you smiled. Yeah?



Well, how do you mean you think

I'm funny? You just are. That's all.



What else are you doing

with all your money?



I hear you're gettin' a new

car. Mm-hmm. It's different.



It's got bullet-proof glass

and a steel body.



And I got myself

a new house too.



Come up sometime?



Yeah. I'll bring

my grandmother.



No kiddin. You come up?



Why don't you get

yourself a girl, Tony?



I'm workin' on that now.



Yeah? Well, don't

tire yourself out.



Is Johnny in?




He's mad, huh?



Hiya, boss.



When are you gonna learn that I

am the boss? Sure, you're the boss.



Then what do you mean by breaking

up that Lakeview joint last night?



Didn't I tell you to stay out of the

North Side? Listen, Johnny, it was easy.



You listen to me, stupid. That was one

of O'Hara's places, and you know it.



Didn't I tell you I wasn't

ready for O'Hara yet?



It was a nice little order...    barrels

a week. I don't care if it's    a day.



What do you use to think

with, an empty beer keg?



Just when we get this territory

lined up and runnin' smooth,



you step out and gum up the

parade. How do you mean, Johnny?



I just sell a little more

beer. Aw, don't worry.



Don't worry? You know what

O'Hara's liable to do now?



He'll send his guns down here on the South

Side. They'll move around like hummingbirds.



You're liable to get it, and

I'm liable to get it. He's tough.



Aw, he ain't so tough...

hangin' out in a flower shop.



- You afraid of a guy like that?

- I ain't afraid of anybody.



Sure, you're not.



That's a crazy question,

hey, Johnny?



Come on. Don't argue.

Where you goin'?



To clean up after you, you mug,

unless it's too late.



Look out!



It's Keach.



Hello. Hello?



Hel... Hello.



Hello. This Mr. Camonte's




What's the name, please?

This Mr. Camonte's secretary.



Secretary, I told you.

Hey, hey, hey.

Oh. Okay, boss.



No, no. I no talkin' on you. I was

talkin' on Mr. Camonte. That's my boss.



That's... Hey, hey. Get a name.



Get a name.



What's your name?



No, no. I don't wanna know

what's your brother's name.



I wanna know

what's your name.



Oh, you do, huh? Listen, I come on over

there, I smack you right in the teeth.



I get you, your brother...

Hey! What's-a matter?



That's no way to talk.

Talk nice.



Tell him to state

his business.



Go state your business!



Who was it?



- I don't know.

- What do you mean, "I don't know"?



Didn't I tell you always to get a

name and write it down over here?



Oh, boss, I forget again.

You forget again.



Hey, what are you

writin' there, huh?



I don't know. I can't

write. Can't write?



That's nice... a secretary

that can't write.



A secretary must be able

to write, must be educated.



Get an education.

Can't write.






That's your fault.



This Mr. Camonte's sec...



Oh, no. Please, you're wrong.

I no hang up on you.



I thought you was through.



I told you before. You have to

write a letter. You have to make...



Oh, you do, huh?



Let me tell you...



Aw, shut up, you! You... Hey,

what's the matter with you?



You crazy? Listen,

the last time I tell you...



You pick yourself

a nice one.



You get one for me?

Didn't have time.



Was there any trouble?

Naw. It was easy.



How many was there?

He was alone.






Hello. Who is it?



I'm so...

I don't get...



Boss, I don't get the name.



Hello. Yeah? Who?

Oh, sure.



Sure. Send her right up.



That's Poppy.



Hey. Better nobody

see you with this.



Hello, handsome.



Well, Poppy.

Hello, Tony.



They tell me O'Hara was killed

in his flower shop this morning.



Had you heard that? Did

Johnny send you up here?






How do you

like this place?



Kind of gaudy, isn't

it? Ain't it though?



I'm glad you like it. Come here.

I'll show you something nice.



Steel shutters...

on all the windows.



It's my own idea.



In case you have visitors you don't

like, huh? Uh-huh. That's right.



How do you... How do you

like the view here, huh?



You see that?



Someday I look

at that sign and I say,



"Okay, she's mine. "



You think so?



I got

a"purtty" good idea.



That's-a "purtty" hot.



Expensive, eh?



Yeah. Come here. I'll show you

somethin' what's "purtty" hot.



How do you like

this place, huh?



Come here.



Here's some stuff

I buy.



Mm, aren't they sweet?




You like? I'm gonna get

some ties made to match.



See, what I'm gonna do

is wear a shirt only once.



Then I give it right away

to the laundry.



A new shirt every day. Tsk. You're just

gonna drive the women mad, aren't you?




One of them.



Meaning me, I suppose.



Look at this.



Huh? It's got

inside springs.



I bought it at an auction. It's a buy.



Go ahead, sit down.

Try it.



Yeah. It's all right. You like it? Hmm?



I thought you were

Johnny's friend.



Sure. I likeJohnny,

but I like you more.



Scusa, boss.

Cops is downstairs.



All right. Tell 'em to come in

and sit down. I'll be right out.






Hey, I... I don't wanna be

caught here. This is a mess.



It's all right. Don't

get excited. It's easy.



Oh, great. Thanks.

Hey, Poppy.



After I get through with 'em, I'll meet

ya at the restaurant... on Fourth Street.



Yeah, all right. Hey.

Hey, go to the left.






Hello, Guarino.




You all alone?




Ah, you're a cute fella

comin' here all by yourself.



You ain't afraid of me,

huh? No, nor    like ya.



Come on. The chief s

waiting. Hey, Angelo.



Call up Epstein

and tell him that...



Naw. Hey, Little Boy,

call up Epstein.



Tell him that kidney foot here is

taking me down to the chief s office.



Let him come right down with

"habus corpis. " Understand?



Hey, you know, I just hear O'Hara,

he was-a met with a terrible accident.



That's too bad, you know?





Come on, come on.



So Camonte thinks he's

gonna run this side of town,



now that he's got O'Hara.



He's gettin'too big.




He won't get

any bigger.



We'll take him before he

finds out about these guns.



    slugs a minute. Get

the rest of them unpacked.



How many we got? Plenty. And

there's a lot more coming.



O'Hara had them run in

across the line last night.



We'll have the cops on

our necks. Forget it.



They can't do

anything about it.



There's no law against

bringing guns into the state,



and we can buy

all we want.



What a cinch.

You said it.



Gaffney, listen. Camonte

just left headquarters.



McGill's trailing him.

He's gonna phone.



Hey, you guys.

Load those guns.



You get the cars ready.



Stick the hearse

in front of'em.



Then to the South Side, and I want

everybody. You hang on to that phone.



Right. Snap into it now. Get going.



Hello. Hello, Tony. Have a seat.






Well, what took you

so long?



Eh, the moxie, he was late

with the "ibious corpse. "



Go on, order some food,

will ya? I'm hungry.



You know, every time I

see you, you look better.



That's a cute hat.

Please! My stockings.



What's the matter? Don't do

that, Tony. They're brand-new.



Hands off, huh?

No. Feet.



You know,

I know lotsa girls.



Uh, redheads and blondes... all kinds.



They all like me.

Yeah. You're pretty good, eh?



I'm the best. Are you

gonna eat, by any chance?



I'm not hungry,

except for you.



You got somethin'

I like.



Yeah. I'm nice

with a lot of dressing.



You work fast, don't you, Tony? No.

Say, I've been waitin' a long time.



I'm crazy for you.



Everybody say, "Tony

Camonte, he's a big shot.



He's got everything

he wants. "



Yeah. I got everything but

what I want. You understand?



Pardon me. Telephone

for Mr. Camonte.



Hey, dope, go see who

it is. And get a name.



Hello. This Mr. Camonte's




What's your name?

I say what's your name?



This Mr. Camonte's




You have to speak louder.

I can't hear what you say.



That's too loud. That's

too loud. Talk "lowler. "



Hello. Please.



Don't be a fool, Tony!



What's the name, please?



I can't... Hello?



Hello. Please,

I can't hear what you say.



Hey! That's O'Hara's mob.



I can't hear what...



I can't...



I can't hear

what you say.



It's too loud.



Hey, lookit! They got

machine guns you can carry.



If I had some of them, I could

run the whole works in a month.



I'll get you one

in a minute.



Hey, that's swell! Look,

it's little. You can carry it.



Come on.

Let's get outta here.



Boss, there was too much noise.

I didn't get their name.



That's a dope!



Take him upstairs!

Take him upstairs!



That's all right. The

back door! The back door!



Hey, lookit.

They've been here too.



Hey, look at that.

Come here.



Get me some shells.

Let's see if she works.



Hey, you, call Fugatti. Tell him

we want three cars... side curtains.



Hey, Johnny.

Look what I got.



You dirty murderin' mug! You bumped

off O'Hara. Who, me? That's foolish.



You told me to stay out of

the North Side. I stay out.



I've been home all day,

hey, Little Boy? Sure.



Sure. Oh, so that's it?

I told you to lay off.



I don't hear so good




You won't be hearing anything if you

go on like this. Look. They clipped me.



Lookit, Johnny. You can

carry it around like a baby.



Aw, shut up.! We gotta get

organized. This is only a starter.



They'll be back after us. What do

ya mean? We don't give 'em time.



We throw them Micks

up for grabs.



Yeah, well, when you're laying in

an alley with your head blown off,



maybe you'll learn how

this business oughta be run.



Yeah? And who's gonna

do that? O'Hara's mob.



Gaffney, he's runnin' it now. He'll give it to

you here... a pound of hot lead in the belly.



Make sure it's him, Johnny.

Cars are here, boss.!



Okay. Hey, Little Boy, it's business.

You fix who goes in each car.



Where do you think you're going?

To the North Side.



You can't do that? What do you

mean, can't? Who's stoppin' me?



I am. I'm givin' you orders

for the last time.



There's only one thing that gets

orders and gives orders, and this is it.



That's how I got the South Side, and

that's how I'm gonna get the North Side.



Some little typewriter, huh? I'm gonna

write my name all over this town with it.



In big letters!

Hey, stop him, somebody!



Get outta my way, Johnny!

I'm gonna spit!



Come on, fellas!

Hey, Tony.



Take this along in case that

bean shooter doesn't work.






Come on, Dugan.



All right, come on! Hey, you

see what happened here, kid?



I don't know, mister. It was a

big, black car with side curtains,



and a machine gun

gave 'em the works.



Oh, hello, Ben. Hello, Chief. What are

we gonna do about them machine guns?



What can we do? There's no law against

manufacturing them, just against having them.



If they can't get 'em in one state, they

go across the border and get 'em in another.



These fellas bootleg machine

guns like they bootleg booze.



Yeah. They better do

something about that.



Because with these toys to play with, what

happened before will look like a tea party.



I know it. Say, you better put the

screws on that   nd Street freight house.



I hear they're bringing

'em in in fruit boxes.






Get that guy's number!



Somebody get an ambulance!

What's the matter?



What is this, a pinch?



No. We're bringing you

a valentine.



Don't you know it's Valentine's

Day? Oh, yeah. I forgot.



Come on.

Line up, you guys.



Over there,

all seven of you.



What's the gag?

Is the heat on?




Face the wall.!



Put your mitts up.

All of you.!



Here's Gaffney. Gaffney, what

do you know about this? Well?



Well, I was on my way here to

the garage to keep an appointment.



I was late.




And a car drives up

and some guys pile out.



Two of'em was cops... at least

they was dressed like cops.



Cops. That's a new gag.

Then what?



Well, it looked like a pinch, so I beat

it around the block. Then he picked me up.



Yeah, lucky you were late. Now take

a good peek and see what you missed.



Gangway here.

Keep it clear.



Seven of'em...

lined up against a wall.



Mowed down,

just like that!



Didn't have a chance! Sit down,

Chief. You're wearin' out the carpet.



Yeah? I'm

the only one left.



Thinks he'll get me, huh?

Fat chance!



Who's there? McArthur, from the Journal.



Let him in.



Hi, Gaffney.

How'd you find me?



Oh, we boys from the Journal

always get around.



Yeah? Anybody else know I'm

here? Nope. Just my own idea.



Sit down. You're

gonna stay for a while.




Can't get a thing on him.



We're right up a blind alley

wherever we go.



And Gaffney's turned yellow.

He's hiding out. What about Lovo?



Lovo is practically out.

He's as scared as Gaffney.



It's Camonte, all right, but we

can't prove it yet. No, but we will.



Hey, Chief.

What do you want?



This fellow Camonte.

What about him?



Public's interested in him.

He's a colorful character.



Colorful? What color

is a crawling louse?



Listen, that's the attitude

of too many morons in this country.



They think these big hoodlums

are some sort of demigods.



What do they do

about a guy like Camonte?



They sentimentalize, romance,

make jokes about him.



They had some excuse for glorifying

our old western bad men.



They met in the middle of the street at

high noon and waited for each other to draw.



But these things sneak up, shoot a

guy in the back and then run away.



I guess you're right.




Did you read what happened? A carful of'em

chased another down the street, broad daylight.



Three kiddies playing hopscotch

get lead poured in their little bellies.



When I think what goes on in the minds

of these lice, I want to vomit.







See if you can find Gaffney.

He'll probably get it next.



They got all the others.




Our organizations are opposed

to your policy, Mr. Garston.



Your paper could be an influence

against the gangster,



yet you keep right on playing up

his activities as front-page news.



Murders, gang war, killing!

That's all we read about!



You're glorifying the gangster

by giving him this publicity.



You're trying to tell me you can get

rid of the gangster by ignoring him?



By keeping him off the front

page? That's ridiculous!



You're playing

right into his hands!



Show him up! Run him out of the country!

That'll keep him off the front page.



In the meantime, you expect our children

to read of nothing but outrage and murder?



That's better than

they're being slaughtered.



The city is full of machine

guns, gang war in the streets.



Kids aren't even safe

to go to school.



You want that to go on?

Certainly not.



But what can private

citizens do?



Even our police force

can't stop it.



Don't blame the police.



They can't stop machine guns from being

run back and forth across the state lines.



They can't enforce laws

that don't exist.



Then it's up to the federal

government to do something about it.



You're the government!

All of you!



Instead of trying to hide the facts,

get laws passed that'll do some good!



For instance?

Pass a federal law...



that puts the gun in the same

class as drugs and white slavery!



Put teeth

in the deportation act!



These gangsters don't belong in this

country. Half of'em aren't citizens!



That's true. They bring nothing

but disgrace to my people.



All right.

I'll tell you what to do.



Make laws and see

that they're obeyed...



if we have to have

martial law to do it!



The governor of New Mexico declared

martial law to stop a bullfight,



the governor of Oklahoma

to regulate oil production!



Surely gang rule

and wholesale law defiance...



are more of a menace

to the nation...



than the regulation of oil

or a bullfight!



The army will help.

So will the American Legion.



They offered their services

over two years ago!



And nobody

ever called on 'em.



Let's get wise to ourselves.

We're fighting organized murder!



That Sadie Thompson,

she's pretty smart girl.



What's a girl wanna hustle

in a place like that for?



Yeah, it's

rainin' all the time.



Yeah, that rain.

That's pretty good.



That comes from a pipe,

just like a shower.



Them two fellas... Which

one do you think she takes?



The guy with the collar?

Nah. He ain't so hot.



Hey, listen. Them marines

ain't so hot too.



Come on. I go take a smoke.



That's a fine show. I gotta

see more shows like that.



You know, serious.



Ain't got no jokes.

I like a show with jokes.



That's-a dope.

What more do you want?



Listen, this girl Sadie, she's

got what you call a problem.



This fella with

the collar, he's gonna...



What's the matter?

They found Gaffney.



Spotted him down at Frank's

Bowling Alley. He got in a game.



Yeah? It's a setup.

Take about an hour...



I'm lookin' at a show now.

Listen, it's the last act.



There's two fellas after a girl

which is called Sadie, see?



And this girl Sadie, she's been

what you call... disillusioned.



We gotta do it now! He's

liable to slip us again.



He's the last one, boss.

Come on, Tony.



Ah, that's too bad.

All right, come on.



Wait a minute.

You stay here.



You stay and see the show. Ah, boss!



I gotta know which fella

this girl Sadie, she take.



You stay here and find out,

then come and tell me.



It's all right, boss.

The copper's gone.



All right.

Come on.



Hey, Little Boy, you go around

the back, up on the balcony.



Hey, Pietro, side door. He may

have friends. You never can tell.



Joe, I want you to stand in the alley.

If he gets that far, you do your stuff.



You keep the motor running.

Bring the presents.



You stay here.

Come on, fellas.



Ah, now we'll know what happened

to that girl, Sadie.



Angelo, did she take

the guy with the collar?



Nah. She climb back

in the hay with the army.



Yeah? That's fine.

She's a smart girl, that kid.



Come on.

What're you doin'?



Not bad, huh?



Just watch this one.



Hello, Tony.

How are you?



Ahhh, that's-a pretty hot!








Hello, stranger.



Chair. Well, Johnny!

Well, you're lookin' swell.



I thought we were gonna

see something of you.



- Well, here I am.

- Where have you been? On a vacation?



I've been workin'. Up on

the North Side, huh, Johnny?



That's what the papers say.



Don't work too hard.



I just finish up tonight.

Now I play a while.



You get your own table,




Why is that?

This is a table for two.



Well, maybe you get

another table, huh, Johnny?



Hey, listen, you!

Who do you think you are?



What are you tryin' to do?



All right, go on.



Nothing seems to bother

you much, does it?



Well, I get used to noises.



Hello, Guino.

Hello, baby.



Why are you always

high-hatting me? Go on, beat it.



I suppose you need

an organ grinder to work with?



Tony's inside. He see you

in that outfit?



I looked pretty good

from two stories up.



Am I different now?

Wanna dance with me?



Listen, you're

Tony's sister, see?




you're only a kid.



I'm   .



You like that music?



Now do you wanna dance?




Afraid! Afraid

ofTony's sister! Why, you...



Well, I notice

you stood there and watched.



Someday you'll find out

you've been missing something.



Hey, how about it,

you and me, huh?



I thought

you weren't dancing.



I changed my mind.

I need exercise.



We show 'em

somethin', huh?



I think you missed me, huh?



That's right.



We make up for lost time.



How do you wanna play,

Tony? Like this?



That's it.



You wait here.

I take her home myself.



You can't!

Shut up!



You'll be sorry for this.



Next time I catch you in a place

like that, I'm gonna kill you.



You're telling me what to do? I'll do

what I want, same as you! Understand?



You listen to me!

I hate you!



Never mind what I do!

That's all right.



You're gonna stay home,




I'm no baby!

I can take care of myself!



Yeah, runnin' around with the fellas,

huh? Letting 'em hold you like that?



Letting 'em look at you? Dressin'

up like that for fellas to see, huh?



What I do with fellas

is my business!






Oh, Mama.

Cesca, what's the matter?



What-a Tony do to you, huh?

What he do?



He hit me. He said he'd kill

me, and I wasn't doing anything.



I was only dancing! That's

all right, figlia mia. No cry.



All right, tell-a Mama.

Come on upstairs.



No cry, baby.



He hasn't any right to. Just because I'm his

sister, he can't throw me around like that.



All right, no cry, baby.

I tell you.



I tell you lotsa times!



He hurt you! He hurt you!



He hurt everybody.



It's all right.



See if you can put out his tires. Right.



That got 'er!



Look out!



Just shut up.



Give us some nickels. Give

us some nickels. Hurry!



Lakeside     .



Get me a drink.



- Hello?

- Hello. Is this Jim?



Tony Camonte.

Is Rinaldo there?



No, Mr. Camonte.

He left an hour ago.



Is Lovo there?



Lovo? No.

He left too.



Said he was going

back to the office.



Bosworth     .



- Hello?

- Hello. Mabel?




Rinaldo there?



Why, no. He ain't been here. You know, I

think that guy's givin' me the runaround.



I've had a date with him

two or three times...



Maybe he going home to bed. Ah,

what're you talkin'... That tom cat!



Try Maizie.



Maizie. That's right.

I forgot about her.



Uh... uh, Hatfield     .



Yeah,     .



Come on.



- Hello?

- Hello, Maizie?



It's Tony Camonte.

Rinaldo there?



Yeah. For you.



- Hello?

- Hello, Rinaldo?



I'm at Pietro's.




- Yeah, come right away.

- Anything wrong?



Yeah, plenty.



Go get me a towel.



I thought you weren't

doing anything tonight.



I'll be back later.



This is worse than being

in love with a grasshopper.



It took you a long time

to get here.



Who done it? I don't

know, but I got an idea.



You just wait. How do

you stand with Lovo? Huh?



Come on! How do you stand with Lovo?



Who's Lovo?



That's good.

Say when.



That's enough.



You callJohnny Lovo at his office

at    minutes past  :   see?



That's    minutes

past  :  .



You say that you callin'

from the country, see? Uh-huh.



You one of the guys that

took me for a ride. Uh-huh.



Car got smashed,

and I got away.



The car got smashed,

and I got away! Yes, yes.



You think it was Johnny? I don't

know, but we'll find out now.



We'll be there

when Pietro calls.



And if it was Johnny,

he'll stall, won't he?




Let's go.



Open the door!



Come on. Let's go.



Hey, Tony, where you been?

What happened to you?



Yeah, look. They spoil

my brand-new suit.



Who? Coppers?

Nah. Monkeys.



Never seen 'em before.

Somebody must've brought 'em in.



How did they get you?



They smashed my bus,

took me for a ride... almost.



That's right.

You left the café alone.



You oughta know better

than to do that. Where were you?



I thought you always

stuck to Tony.



Well, baby, I'm glad you got

away. I'd have missed you plenty.



I'll get somebody for this.

I knew you would, Johnny.



That's Poppy. I don't

want to see her tonight.



I'll tell her you ain't in.



Hey, wait a minute.

I'll talk to her.



Hello? Who?



No, there's nobody

here by that name.



What? What?



Oh, ring off.

You got a wrong number.



You better have a drink,







It's a lie!

I didn't do it!



I wouldn't try anything

on you, Tony! We're pals!



Sure, we're pals.



No, I didn't do it.

You got me wrong.



Listen, Tony, you're the last

guy in the world I'd try to cross.



You wouldn't do anything to me.

Tony, gimme a chance.



You can have anything I got,

all the dough you want.



Poppy! I'll let you have her.

I give you my word.



You can have Poppy, Tony!

I'll tell her!



The boss!




Let me go away!

Gimme a break!



I ain't never did anything to

anybody! I never hurt anybody!



Nah, you get somebody else

to do it for ya!






Wait! Don't!

Tony, come back!






Oh, Tony.



What's happened?



- Where's Johnny?

- Where do you think?



Go pack your stuff.



Hey, come here.



Lookit there.



Do you remember

what I told ya?



Tony isn't here.

He's out of town.



You're telling me?



Why did you hang up

when I called yesterday?



Too busy.



The one on the end's

kind of cute.



She ain't bad.



I should think you'd want

something more like...



Like what?






Cut out

that sort of talk.



You're only a kid.



I told you I had

grown-up ideas.



You're like Tony when you

go after something, hey?



What would Tony say?



He'll be away for a month.



The big fella's

on his way from Florida.



Uh-huh. Well,

he better watch his step.



This town's entirely different

than when he left it.



That new crowd down at the

city hall is looking for him.



The first crack he makes,

they'll climb all over him.



Hand it to Hap. Tell him to

play it for what it's worth.



Hey. You stay out here.




Where's Cesca?



She got a place of her own. She say to

me, " Shut up. Mind-a your business. "



Well, is she livin' alone?




All-a the time

that what she tell me.



But one day I follow her. She meet

a man. They go in the house together.



I look and I see her name

under the push bell.



See? See what you do? Once I

have a son, I have a daughter...






Where is the place

she live?



    Central Street.



What you gonna do?

What you... No, no, Tony!






Central Street.



He was goin' downgrade

makin'    miles an hour



When his whistle

broke into a scream



And they found him

in the wreck



With his hands

on the throttle



Scalded to death

by the steam



It's a mighty rough road

from Lynchburg to Danville



And the track's

on the three-mile grade



It was on this road

that he lost his air brakes



You can see

what a jump he made




Hello, baby.



I'm so happy.

You're telling me?



You do love me,

don't you, Guino?



You know I do.



Never stop telling me,

will you?



I'm not like

all the others, am I?



You're up there

all by yourself, sweetheart.



We'll always

be happy, won't we?



Hello, Tony.



Tony, I...



Tony, don't! Tony!



Guino! Guino!



Guino, speak to me!

Speak to me!



Guino, say something!




Tony, he's my Guino!



I love him.

We were married yesterday, Tony!



Really married!



We were going to surprise you.

Weren't we, Guino?



Oh, darling, speak to me!



He's dead.



He loved me,

really loved me.



Don't touch me!



Don't come near me!



Stay away from me!

You're not my brother!



Don't you think I know?






He kills people!



He kills everybody!



He kills everything!



He's a butcher.

That's what you are.



You're a butcher!

You're a butcher!



Drive down to the house.



Come on, boss.



Go on, beat it!

Get outta here!



Come on! Come on!



This Mr. Camonte's secre...



You'll have to speak loud.

I can't hear you.



It's... It's Poppy, boss.



I- I got her name.



I didn't know.

I didn't know.
