We might wonder why Gene Hackman's character is named "Mary Ann" and why his brother, played by Gregory Walcott, is called "Weenie." We could try to analyze why one of the gangster characters is being played by retired NYPD detective Eddie Egan, who himself was the model for Gene Hackman's character Jimmy "Popeye" Doyle in The French Connection (1971). We could compare and contrast Lee Marvin's killer character Nick Devlin ("Old Nick" Devil?) with his Point Blank character Walker, both of whom live by the words, "I want my money." And is Sissy Spacek's character "Poppy" somehow addictive? And whatever became of Janit Baldwin, the girl with all the nickels?
Let's just look at the friggin' pictures.
