According to several leaflets accompanying versions of the movie, it's:   Minaldi


Subtitles are often not exactly the same as the spoken words.  I can't read the Chinese/Japanese subtitles but it's Minaldi in the French subtitles and Monaldi in the English & Dutch subtitles.


The actual words spoken are:

MAX:  Noodles, say hello to Mr. Minaldi.

FRANKIE:  Hey Noodles, how are you?

NOODLES: All right.

FRANKIE:  It's very nice to meet you.  You don't have to call me Mr. Minaldi like he says.  I like my friends and people I respect to call me Frankie.






Ah, you're probably right, it must be the bloody subtitles. Afro

I was curious, I always thought his surname was ''Minaldi'', until I saw some folks around the net referring to him also as ''Monaldi'' and ''Manoldi'' (and probably a few other variations)... Undecided

It's ''Manoldi'' on IMDb. Sad

But you know, I'm slightly embarrassed to admit that I never knew until this very moment that Frankie and Joe actually bear the same surname... Embarrassed

What's up with that, they're supposed to be family or something?

I guess I never really believed anything Frankie said. But hey, even a liar can't help but tell the truth once in awhile.

Interesting, and also: is it possible they even changed his/their name(s) when they re-cut the movie? Wouldn't surprise me.

You uploaded that video? Thanks for the effort! Cool

Yeah, that's what I was saying, you can't say for sure what the actors are saying, it seems they change his surname each time they mention him, lol. But it's understandable considering they're American actors.

Joe (Minaldi) is a pig, just disgusting, Frankie seems slightly better mannered, though I suspect only cause we don't see him eating anything, and he's smoking a cigarette.
