Cry of the City

How's Papa and the kids?

l saw your brother, Tony.
He's a great boy.
l beat he told you where to head in.
Great boy.
He thinks you're a hero, Marty.
6 or 8 years from now
l'll be chasing him, too.

He'll have plenty of fun first.
Do you think it's worth it?
How much money you make?
Ninety four dollars and forty
three cents a week.

Ninety four dollars and forty-three
cents, don't go far.

Ever go to Florida for
a couple of weeks?

Or bet 100 bucks on a horse?
Or give a girl a big
bunch of orchids...

...because you like her smile?
-No, but l sleep good nights.

ln some cheap room.
Not me. l had enough of
that when l'm a kid.

Crummy tenements,
no food, no clothes.

Save it for the jury.
Who do you think you're kidding?
l was brought up in
the district, too.

l've heard that dialogue
ever since l was ten.

Get hep...
...only suckers work...
...don't be a square, stay
with the smart money...

...let the old man get calluses
digging ditches...

:28:18 food, no clothes,
crummy tenements.

You're breaking my heart, Marty.
You played it your way,
l played it mine.

Think it's worth the chair?
l don't know.
l haven't tried yet.
Maybe you won't mind.
You'd be the center of attention.
Me, l'd kind of think of afterwards.
When they slide that pine box
through the back door...

...and somebody has to identify
it before they take it away.

l do what l do, l get the
chair. Nobody else.

What about the girl?
What about...
