The Cotton Club (1984)
Dir. Francis Ford Coppola



Joe returns to the American screen in his first Hollywood A-picture, the notoriously troubled Robert Evans production about gangsters and The Cotton Club, where black entertainers performed for all-white clientele. Showing up on and off during the film’s climactic, all-star club scene, Joe manages to make a striking impression as the infamous Charles “Lucky” Luciano. He looks like he could be Robert De Niro’s brother! Available on video/DVD.
