The glance that makes holes in the silver screen


« : March 28, 2009, 02:22:30 AM »

I just wondered what was the name of that ale house in OUATIA where Noodles & co pick up the drunk they plan to roll? Is it this (at 3:58):  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LEYaypSPy5k&feature=related That's from The Hard Way, a comedy starring Michael J. Fox and James Woods. I thought it would be kinda funny if it was, maybe some kind of a homage.

It would be nice if someone would find a little time and inclination to solve this one.

...

Now that I think, hasn't someone already mentioned this?

Well, A1 even went to the place and posted some pictures here...but then he went nuts. But if you mean that somebody's already mentioned the possible connection in The Hard Way, I don't think so.

I don't know, the bell in my head tells otherwise--

Of course it could be. You've been here longer than me.

I happened to look at the OUATIA trivia page on IMDb (first time God knows since when) and I found this piece of trivia which A1 most probably added there:
Quote
The bar in which the five young members of the gang debate whether to take the dollar the bartender offers them for burning the newsstand or roll the drunk, is McSorley's Alehouse on 15 E. 7th St. near St. Mark's Square. It opened in 1854 and is the oldest continually operating bar in the United States. The building the boys exit from is not, however, the exterior of McSorley's.
So yes, that's it. And now I insist that if anyone should ever meet James Woods they have to ask him if he had something to do with choosing the location.
