* How exactly is 5'8" Creator/SteveBuscemi supposed to pass for 6 foot tall JohnTurturro, even with his face blown off?
** To be fair, it looks as though the directors tried to get around that, as most scenes with Tom and Bernie feature either one standing while the other sits or both standing, and in the Miller's Crossing scene, Bernie is groveling pathetically, disguising his height.
*** And when the characters find the body, it's mentioned to have been picked over by scavengers, even aside from the normal decay AND the fact that Mink was shot in the face. While we don't see it, it's clearly a disgusting sight. Tom knows it's not Bernie, but the two mooks with him were the idiots who let him alone in the first place. They went looking for a body, found one, and didn't feel a compelling reason to look for signs it was someone else.
**** Also the body had the same clothes Bernie was wearing.
**** Adding to all that, the Dane did eventually figure out it was Mink, despite the state of the body. Maybe that was one of the factors, he just didn't notice at first.
**** What's he going to do, pick over the corpse? He found what he was expecting.
**** Considering that Mink's body was in significant enough a state of decay that the odor was overpowering even from several feet away, it seems unlikely that anyone would have been examining it closely enough for a more solid ID than "dark hair, white shirt, red suspenders, shot in the face". (Though this does beg the question -- how did Mink end up out there?)
