Crime Story: “Top of the World” Trailer

Michael Mann directed this episode of Crime Story approximately eight years before Martin Scorsese’s CASINO was released. There are many similarities as the characters of Ray Luca (Anthony Denison) and Nicky Santoro (Joe Pesci) were based on the same person, Anthony Spilotro.

“Top of the World” was the 20th episode of the first season. It was written by Peter Lance and Frederick Rappaport, based on a story by Chuck Adamson & Gustave Reininger and Peter Lance. This was the only episode of Crime Story that Michael Mann directed.

NBC originally aired this episode on March 6, 1987.
