Once Upon A Time In America / "I wouldn't want to miss, Mr. Bailey"
« on: May 02, 2010, 10:57:31 AM »
First, I'd like to apologize for not posting for so long, if anyone here remembers me (a wife's surgery can set you back a few years on message boards), secondly, I just saw OUATIA a couple of years ago; I was hesitant at first, because in my own mind, I believed Sergio Leone's genre was Westerns alone--boy, was I wrong! I'm so addicted to this movie now, I watch it every night. 

Anyway, the question/discussion point I'm raising is when older Noodles is talking with Secretary Bailey about his eyes, hands, etc., being not adequate enough to handle a gun any more.  The quote that comes to mind is "and I wouldn't want to miss, Mr. Bailey!"

Now, Max just glosses over this with "cut the bull----, Noodles," and yada yada.  I'm wondering how many people here think this is genuine rage seething within Noodles at making this remark, or he actually thinks he's incapable of handling a gun at his age.  I'm on the side of the rage angle--please discuss, and it's nice to be back!  O0
