Looks fun. I first learned of Fast Jack in the film Yonkers Joe. Apparently the director's father was Jack's partner.

In the DVD extras (if you can find it) there are some interesting interviews, and the director shows some fun moves as well.

Thanks to Tom I've had the great opportunity to meet Jack a few times and his stories are spellbinding. Can't wait to read the book!
