* FaceDeathWithDignity: [[spoiler: Dutch Schultz. Despite getting shot in a men's room by a ridiculously disposable [[{{Mooks}} henchman]], he takes it in a calm manner, silences his killer with a look full of contempt and uses whatever life is left in him to walk to a restaurant table to avoid dying near a urinal. Of note is the fact he is shot again when he initially attempts this but pushes on despite it, his assassin being too shocked to follow up anymore.]]

''Hoodlum'' is a 1997 American movie about the [[BigApplesauce NYC]] {{Gangsterland}} during TheGreatDepression, the numbers racket in Harlem and the subsequent gang wars for control over it. The main conflict is between the black mob, led by Ellsworth "Bumpy" Johnson (Creator/LaurenceFishburne), and the Jewish mafia, under the rule of Dutch Schultz (TimRoth). There are also the Italians, headed by Lucky Luciano (Andy Garcia), but they apparently try to play neutral and keep out of the battles over the numbers racket.
