Description by OLDIES.com:

Beppo, Ezmo, Mario...uh-oh! When Kid Sally and his gang of goodfellas come up with a plan to grab a piece of the mob action, it'll be a no-brainer.

The screen version of newspaperman Jimmy Breslin's best-selling comic novel about a Brooklyn turf war has all chambers firing. Jerry Orbach ("Law and Order") plays Kid Sally, a small-timer aiming for the big time by targeting rival Baccala (raspy-voiced Lionel Stander). And on-the-rise screen giant Robert De Niro plays Mario, posing as a priest in the Kid's scheme to give Last Rites to Baccala. It's the perfect crime. Planned by perfect idiots.

Product Description:

This comedic gangster picture is generally remembered for its unusual comic turn from a young Robert De Niro. De Niro plays a member of an Italian cycling team who gets lost in New York. Finding himself in trouble with the mob, he masquerades as a priest. Gags involving lions ensue. The 1971 comedy has a cast full of character actors and is also notable for the unusual pairing of Waldo Salt and Jimmy Breslin as the credited screenwriters.
