3 things about John Cassavetes’ THE KILLING OF A CHINESE BOOKIE (1978 version)

The Killing of a Chinese Bookie [1978]

1. Gambling debts: first “not just a piece of paper,” then “just paper.”
2. At the restaurant, an off color limerick.
3. What is the white goo in Mr. Sophistication’s hair? Greasepaint?

3 other things.

All things considered, I think I prefer the 1978 version. It’s tighter and more focused.
