Carlito Can’t Count
I just got to get this off my chest because it’s been bothering the hell out of me for a long time.
In the final scene of Carlito’s Way, Al Pacino is dying on the Amtrak platform and slips Penelope Ann Miller $70,000 in cash from the vault to raise the unborn baby. But in my estimation, this wad looks like maybe $20,000, at most. Seventy grand would be like two bricks stacked on top of each other. There’s no way this wad is anywhere close to $70 grand.
Relieved. Whew — now, I feel much better.
