Movie Scene : The Untouchables – Don’t Fuck With Malone.

images (11)

Malone has had it with this asshole.  Time for old school ways to make this guy talk.  Worst thing this guy could do was tell them to “Fuck Off”.  That’s it.  After Jimmy gets through with him “You’re going to be begging to talk”.  Malone is right, his ways work. Our guy is ready to chat.

Great scene. Connery is right in the moment and truthful as hell. No bullshit, had enough fucking around, lets get on with this. Connery has the presence and physicality to pull it off.  Just watch him as he listens to what’s going on. He can’t take it anymore and loses it. He lives and breaths Jimmy Malone.  CB would talk too.  Anything he wanted to know.  I’d even make it up.

    Yeah, man. That’s a hell of a scene.

      Sean is a really good actor. His old roots come to bear on this one. His acting skills are top notch. Check out his work in ‘The Offence’. Being a good Scott I think Sean curled a bit.

      A buddy of mine just headed to some out of place down in Mexico. I said at least you won’t find curling down there and he said “How wrong you are CB. A bunch of Canadians hide out in this town and they get a satellite feed and curling plays in the bars etc 24 hrs a day” Neil it’s a underground culture. Great article. Thanks for sending that my way. I begrudgingly have a spot in my Canuck heart for the frozen game.

    CB, as a film buff, should enjoy this: I read a book about film ages ago and it featured a whole thing on a classic 1925 silent Russian movie called “Battleship Potemkin.” They talk about a famous set-up piece from the movie called “The Odessa Steps” and you could actually flip the pages of the book and on the page bottoms, could watch the sequence. In “The Untouchables,” the shootout on the steps in Union Station is an homage to Odessa Steps. You can see the scenes back-to-back on YouTube. Surprisingly, “Untouchables” Wikipedia page says not one word about this but it was well-known at the time. I know Ebert mentioned it.

      Good catch Doc. Yeah Wik is a good source but it misses and is dry as hell for CB. Yeah familiar with the scenes. Both are very good. Like musicians, film makers steal and pay tribute all the time. Everytime i watcha good film I get inspiration.
      This scene with Connery is an acting lesson of being in the moment and committing to the moment. He has the weight to carry a big old school nasty cop.

        Yeah, BTW, terrific movie. And this flick aside, for me Connery is the only Bond.

        I thought he was James Bond and changed his name . Yup, he’s the one for CB.

    Amazing. One of my favourite Connery moments, this. He owned this flick… he owned most flicks. Fact.

      Yup, yup and yup! He is going to (and has) be showing up a lot more on my takes. I don’t want him coming over and kicking the shit out of me for not acknowledging him.

        All films with Sean Connery are 99.6% better than they would be without him.

        I have ‘The Hill’ and ‘The Anderson Tapes’ on deck. Great Sean flicks.
        Heard the cuts you sent in to ME. Rainer just came on my radar a while back, yeah he plays with a bunch of folks I dig and i missed him. I got him now.

        Rainer is exceptional. What a talent. I got into him around 2003, I think. A friend loaned me the Live at the Performance Center album and it knocked my socks off… I delved right in from that point on.

        hotfox63 did a piece on him. I wonder if Sean listens to him?

        I first saw a Connery/Bond movie when I was barely a teenager. That whole caddish swagger he had with the ladies was unbelievable. I bought right into it, so envious. For the longest time, I wanted to be a spy. Then a friend of mine said, “You know, they capture you, they’ll torture you.” So I abandoned the idea of sleuthing and meeting glamorous women and instead settled for dating Betty Lou at the malt shop.

        He only graduated sixth grade so you’re one up on him.

    Now I meant to comment on this post much earlier, but kept forgetting…my hubs and I just rewatched this back in March. It had been a long time between watches for me. It seemed every time I tuned in, I’d fall asleep! Call it maturity, or whatever, but when I watched it this time, I had a sort of awakening! I really REALLY liked it. I can’t stop thinking about it, actually.

      Good flick. So many good supporting performances. Well directed and shot. Connery nailed it. Good story. I know all about that “maturity ” thing, I nod off standing up. Sort of like a horse.

        I have a friend who can have a nappytime anywhere, so I know about it. At any rate, you’d think Costner in Armani would perk me up, but I was biased against him big time in the 90s. Lol

        I don’t have the female take on old Kevin. CB keeps it pretty positive on my comments, lets just say that Kev isn’t my style. Probably how they got the funding for the flick and he wasn’t bad.

        He was oversaturating the screen back in the day, and I thought he had an ego to match. Today, looking at him back then, he’s a handsome dude. But, younger Sarca did. not. like. him.

        Younger and older CB has not seen to many of his films. So maybe “younger” Sarca was watching movies that she liked better. Over “saturating” seems to be the way of mainstream film/music. Oh yeah it’s about making money and cashing in.
