"“It’s the kind of like this was the role was waiting his whole life to play. All the other gangster roles were the lead-up to playing Cody…. I don’t think anyone played a gun moll better than did.” -Robert Osborne “I think this is a beautifully edited film. You and I have talked about the importance , especially in action films like this,… and that final sequence is remarkable.” -Alec Baldwin"
