View Full Version : Scarface(1932)

Definitely a film, which I hope gets a DVD release because of its importance as a Gangster film from the 1930s. Muni is very good in the main role, but what was memorable about Scarface was the coin flipping antics of George Raft, which made him a star(at least in the 1930s before the emergence of Bogart in 41). His coin flipping antics are wonderfully poked fun and played homage to by Billy Wilder's Some Like It Hot. One of Hawks best films, and one of the best of the 1930s that hasn't lost its walloping effect.

Terrific film. Inevitably it's very dated, but Al Pacino was impressed enough with Muni to ask a producer friend to look into doing a remake... Karloff is very good in a supporting role.

I have the LD of this, which had the original ending & the (post-1934) ending which reflected the Production code.
Definitely a classic & deserves a DVD release. Lets hope MCA gets around to it in 2003. An SE would be nice.

Having watched this film has made me interested in seeing more Hawks films from this period.

Technically, this is already on DVD. You can get it in the big boxed set of DePalma's SCARFACE, it's included. But it would be nice to get it by itself.
