    Though I’ve seen both several times, I never made the connection between DePalma’s SCARFACE and LITTLE CAESAR. Rico in the end shows a little more compassion…i guess that’s the difference in our culture between the 1930s and the 1970s.

    Like Paula, I never made the connection between the two films. Nicely done.

    This is a great write-up on this film. I have never been able to catch it to see it from beginning to end. But I love your parallel and influence tying this to Scarface. The colorful gangster names, and a perfectly suited cast- very iconic Chicago Gangster style. Thanks for sharing, Pete!
