Wednesday’s’ Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? “
“You can either have the money and the hammer or you can walk out of here. You can’t have both. What do you want?”
“I just wanna get outta here.”
In the events leading up to this scene, skillful gambling handicapper Sam “Ace” Rothstein (Robert De Niro) agrees to manage the Tangiers casino in Las Vegas for mobsters. In this scene he has detected a team of two cheating at the game of blackjack (one partner could see a dealer’s hole card from another table and signals the high-stakes partner with an electronic leg taping device). Rothstein pulls the signaler into a back room and has his men break the man’s hand with several hammer blows. Then the man’s partner is escorted in. The signaler cries to his partner, “Look what they did to my hand, man!” Rothstein then says line one and the scared partner replies with line two. In the 1996 Academy Awards, Sharon Stone (she played call girl/wife Ginger McKenna Rothstein) was nominated for Best Actress in a Leading Role but lost the Oscar to Susan Sarandon in “Dead Man Walking.” Director Martin Scorsese stated that he created the “head-in-the-vise” scene as a sacrifice, certain that it would be censored out.
