Lepke
(1975)

Curtis Movie Shows He Can Play Dramatic Roles
The late Tony Curtis shows as an remorseless and arrogant killer who shows no sympathy and does not repay back on people who show him mercy and that he plays the cold hearted and callous Louis Lepke Buckhalter who is the only mob boss to get electrocuted in Sing Sing Prison along with his two henchmen.

The supporting cast is quite as good as it shows the late Milton Burle in a very rare dramatic role there. If this movie were a hit, it would have really skyrocketed Curtis' career.
