Little Caesar

Synopsis: Rico is a small-time hood who knocks off gas stations for whatever he can take. He heads east and signs up with Sam Vettori's mob. A New Year's Eve robbery at Little Arnie Lorch's casino results in the death of the new crime commissioner Alvin McClure. Rico's good friend Joe Massara, who works at the club as a professional dancer, works as the gang's lookout man and wants out of the gang. Rico is ambitious and eventually takes over Vettori's gang; he then moves up to the next echelon pushing out Diamond Pete Montana. When he orders Joe to dump his girlfriend Olga and re-join the gang, Olga decides there's only one way out for them.

You'll never be sorry for this.

Come, Joey.

So it's you and me from now on.

Well, I'm glad.

And I'm not ashamed to tell you.

I guess you know by this time

how I feel about you.

That's all right with you, isn't it?

Or have you got another girl?

A steady, I mean.

Hundreds of them, sure. Only...

Only, what's the difference?

This is gonna be real.

- We' II make it mean something.

- Yeah, Joey, let's.

Because I need somebody.

Somebody like you.

Awful bad.

- You believe me, Olga?

- I want to believe you.

What's that?

What you got there, Joe?

What are you doing with that?

Can't you forget you've seen it?

It won't make no difference.

Not between us, Olga.

Don't worry, baby.

It's just a little good-luck charm

I carry around with me.

Is that your racket?


I suppose I got no right to ask you, Joe.

But now...

Now that we got an understanding.

Couldn't you leave it?


I suppose I haven't got the right.

What would be the good

of you asking, kid?

Once in a gang...

- You know the rest.

- I don't want to know.

Only maybe...

Maybe it could be different this time.

If we try.

I've never seen the guy that could

get away with it yet.

Black. Seven.

Sam Vettori is still waiting

for you in your office.

All right, I guess I'll have to see him.

I wonder what he wants here.

Hey, Ritz.

You'd better stick with me.

I'll need you in there.

- That Sam Vettori's a no-good lug.

- You said it, boss.

Better let me go first.

Cut that.

Hello, Arnie.

Surprised to see me

in your swell joint?

Maybe I won't be after you

tell me what you want here.

Oh, I'll tell you, all right.

Diamond Pete asked me to come up.

He's coming up too.

- Pete Montana?

- That's who.

Well, if Pete wants you here,

it's got to be all right with me.
