Where I come from is very poor, see? All the richness is gone a long time ago, so everybody lives by chiseling everybody else. It comes to me very natural. If I live five hundred years ago I guess I be a baron maybe, a robber baron. I live on a rock and chisel the city down below and everybody call me ‘baron’. Now I live in a penthouse and everybody call me ‘boss’.

Dan McGinty, The Great McGinty (1940)

Apparently this is “the best political movie ever.” I haven’t seen it, but the clips on YouTube look OK. But that speech there? That’s some Scarface shit, freal.
