Hoodlum (1997)

Set in 1930s Harlem, this high-octane crime drama told the fictionalized tale of Black gansters fending off Jewish mobster Dutch Shultz from muscling in on their numbers racket. Focusing primarily on legendary hustlers like Bumpy Johnson and Stephanie St. Clair, the film put a retaliatory, blaxploitation slant (the Harlem hustlers never fought back) to a piece of well-known crime history.

On the fifteenth anniversary of the film's release, here's a look at the cast that made a piece of urban history.
