‘Scarface’ Summary

In Scarface, Tony Camonte is a violent and ambitious gangster on the rise in the Chicago underworld. Once he kills his boss, Big Louie, on behalf of the South Side mobster, Johnny Lovo, Tony becomes his second in command. However, Lovo warns Tony to stay from North Side boss named O’Hara. Tony is pretty aggressive when it comes to getting rid of any opposition in his path. Soon, he takes a fancy to Lovo’s girlfriend, and gets her under his thumb too. Eventually, Tony takes control of the South Side away from Lovo, and sets his sites on the North side. The beginning of the end comes for him when he finds best friend, Guino Rinaldo, with his sister in her apartment. That leads to a fatal mistake Tony will regret.

    1. Both are great films. I saw the 1983 version first, but I think Paul Muni is a better actor, and plays Tony better (not to take anything away from Al Pacino who still does an awesome job). Also, stylistically, the 1932 version is just aesthetically more pleasing to me, so 1932’s version is a little better to me overall.

      1. Are any DePalma films in your top 100? No reviews on this site, I thought Carrie or Scarface would be a good LTMR. And mission to mars would be a good #2 review.

        1. I don’t think any would be a top 100, but Wise Guys, The Untouchables, Scarface, Carrie, or Body Double would be good LTMR episodes.

          I forgot all about Mission to Mars. That will definitely be a #2 Review this year now. Thanks for that suggestion.

          1. I was lucky enough to see it on the big screen recently with Nancy Allen in attendance. Yeah it holds up. Looking forward to the San Francisco podcast, I love disaster movies. the Rains Came is another good one from the 30s.
