Farewell, Moe Greene

moe greene

“Don’t you know who I am?  I’m Moe Greene!”.   Actor Alex Rocco, a talented and versatile performer best known for his portrayal of the Bugsy Siegel-esque Las Vegas mob boss Moe Greene in The Godfather, has died at age 79.  Rocco’s character is one of the iconic performances in that magnificent film.  His screen demise as Greene is one of the most memorable in all of “mob cinema”.


Hyman Roth didn’t ask who gave the order.  Because it had nothing to do with business!  RIP Alex Rocco.  And thanks for the memorable character.
