Happy 79 To Movie Icon ROBERT DE NIRO – Turn Up The Volume’s Top 5 Of His Many Classic Movies

17 August 2022

Robert Anthony De Niro Jr. was born 79 years ago today in New York City.
With his puzzling method acting, he starred in many classic movies in the 70s
and early 80s with unique performances.

He won 2 Academy Awards, a Golden Globe Award, the Cecil B. DeMille Award, and
a Screen Actors Guild Life Achievement Award. In 2016 De Niro received the Presidential
Medal of Freedom
from U.S. President Barack Obama in 2016. Along with Al Pacino he’s
my all-time favorite actor. Hands down.

Movie: ANGEL HEART – 1987

Story: The year is 1955. Private detective Harry Angel (Mickey Rourke) is tasked by the shadowy Louis Cyphre (Robert De Niro) to track down the missing crooner Johnny Favorite, whose trace has not been found since 1943. The trail to the missing singer leads to a tangle of mysteries
and bizarre rituals in brooding New Orleans.

Actors: Rober De Niro – Mickey Rourke – Lisa Bonet (former wife of Lenny Kravitz)

Director: Alan Parker (Midnight Express / Mississippi Burning / The Commitments / Evita)

TUTV: Along with Al Pacino my all-time favorite actors. The performances of
DeNiro & Rourke in this David Lynch-esque thriller is nothing less than brilliant.
