The clip David Kleinfeld Introduction from Carlito's Way (1993) with Al Pacino, Sean Penn
I know Dave since he was
just out of law school.
He was workin' as a clerk
for a big mob lawyer.
Kept a tire iron under the seat of his car,
tried like hell not to look scared...
...by all his wise guy clients.
But Davey Kleinfeld,
he ain't scared no more.
So look at you.
You really made something of your life.
You put me in business.
All my first clients came through you.
As I say, you know, top drawer.
You're top drawer, Davey.
Listen, I got something for you.
You remember Saso?
Fat guy, had the Argentine place
He bought the lease on this bankrupt disco.
I got some investors together
and we backed him.
I got $50,000 in the place.
Problem is Saso. He's been shakin' the till,
payin' off gambling debts.
He says he doesn't get $25,000,
he's gonna lose his lease.
I like the place. I go there sometimes.
The money's no big deal.
I don't mind puttin' it in...
...as long as I know there's someone there
who's gonna run the place straight, clean.
I owned clubs. I never ran 'em.
What's the big deal?
You step in, straighten things out...
...you take a salary, a chunk of the profits.
You've done enough already for me.
You call it a favor between friends.
No favor. I owe you.
Favor gonna kill you faster than a bullet.
