Movies on the News: Before Eliot Spitzer, There Was Harry Block

“Eliot Spitzer knew how to catch bad guys by following the money. As attorney general, he once broke up a call-girl ring and locked up 16 people on corruption, money-laundering and prostitution charges. He ruthlessly investigated the pay packages of Wall Street executives and was so familiar with shady financial maneuvers that he was promoted to the top racketeering prosecutor in Manhattan. But in the end, it appears that Spitzer may be done in by the same behavior that he built a career out of prosecuting.” — Samantha Gross and Devin Bartlett, New York Newsday

“It appears my hypocrisy knows no bounds.” — Doc Holliday, Tombstone (1993)

“Just how obscene an amount of cash are we talking about here? Profane or really offensive?” — Mr. Hollister, Pretty Woman (1990)

“I always keep hooker money around, you know, ’cause I once paid by check years ago and the I.R.S. killed me.” — Harry Block, Deconstructing Harry (1997)
