One guy who was responsible for giving all those titles life. One guy who refused to play by the rules. One guy who picked up the dice, had the prettiest dame in the room give them a lucky breath of air, and let them fly, outcome be damned. Hell, he knew it was gonna come up 7.

I interviewed Barry Levinson a few days before 9/11 regarding his heist comedy, "Bandits."

Levinson proved a wonderful conversationalist during our time together...
