Derek Vinyard was not a gangster, not in the usual cinematic term of reference, he was a hooligan. I don't even think Bill the Butcher qualifies, "gangster" refers to a member of organized crime in a modern or contemporary setting (from Prohibition to today) so Bill is no more fitting than a Western outlaw. Another thing, since you didn't inlude Uma Thurman in PULP FICTION, no need for Sharon Stone in CASINO.


For your consideration


Pacino in DICK TRACY

Cagney in ANGELS WITH DIRTY FACES

Widmarck in KISS OF DEATH

Falk in MURDER INC.

Eastern Promises was a great set up for a sequel. Shame it never happened.
