Focusing on the relationship between the three rival leaders, "Bumpy" Johnson (Laurence Fishburne), Dutch Schultz (Tim Roth), and Lucky Luciano (Andy Garcia), Hoodlum is a compelling tale of gangland violence.

Quote: With guns blazing, horses galloping and desperadoes doing what desperadoes do best, ‘Neath the Arizona Skies starring John Wayne ( The Quiet Man) is the quintessential oater, employing the best of the western genre tropes. Chris Morrell (Wayne), the kindly guardian to Nina (Shirley Jean Rickert), a young half-Indian girl, sets out in search of her father in order to prove her birthright and lay claim to money she’s owed from her late mother’s oil lease. Turns out that lawless cowboys Sam Black (Yakima Canutt) and Vic Byrd (Jack Rockwell) also want to get their hands on Nina’s inheritance by whatever means necessary. Will Chris be able to find Nina’s father before Sam does? Will Chris find true romance with Clara (Sheila Terry), the sister of bank robber Jim Moore (Jay Wilsey)? Will Nina ever stop whining? These questions and more will be answered in ‘Neath the Arizona Skies directed by Harry L. Fraser ( Wagon Trail) from a story and screenplay by Burl Tuttle and co-starring George “Gabby” Hayes ( Rainbow Valley).
