Billy Bathgate / Blaze
In 1935, Bronx teenager Billy Behan (Loren Dean) attracts the attention of powerful mobster Dutch Schultz (Dustin Hoffman) and quickly becomes a part of his organization, growing close to Dutch's associate, Bo Weinberg (Bruce Willis). Knowing his yet-undiscovered betrayal of the gang has placed his life in jeopardy, Bo makes Billy promise to look after his girlfriend, Drew Preston (Nicole Kidman). Attracted to the beautiful woman, Billy tries to protect Drew from the murderous Dutch.
This bawdy comedy is loosely based on the real-life relationship between Earl Long (Paul Newman), the governor of Louisiana, and burlesque performer Blaze Starr (Lolita Davidovich). While Long and his lovely lady carry on their scandalous affair, the politician also has his mind on more serious matters, including the right for local black citizens to vote. Although Long's opponents try to use his many eccentricities against him, the feisty public figure won't go down without a fight.
