MR UNTOUCHABLE Original Movie Poster * NICKY BARNES * 2' x 3' Rare 2007 Mint New Condition. Large Wall Size measures 2' feet wide by 3' feet high. Original Official Advance Release Theatrical Poster for the October 26th 2007 Limited Release of " Mr Untouchable " directed by Marc Levin who also directed the documentary " Protocols of Zion ". " Mr Untouchable " is a gritty documentary film about the rise and fall of American Gangster Nicky Barnes, a young black kid from the streets of Harlem who went from being a teen-age heroin junkie to one of the most powerful black drug kingpins in New York City history . With first-hand testimony from Nicky Barnes himself, Mr. Untouchable goes deep inside the New York City heroin game of the 1970s. It is an epic story of business, excess, greed, and revenge. From humble beginnings, playing street basketball on 116th St. and 8th Ave., Nicky Barnes grew up with one eye on the ball and one eye watching the hustlers and gangsters deal dope. Niccolò Machiavelli, the Italian political philosopher whose teachings influenced Barnes’ ambitions, wrote, “Entrepreneurs are simply those who understand that there is little difference between obstacle and opportunity and are able to turn both to their advantage... never was anything great achieved without danger.” Barnes went from a kid playing ball on Harlem courts to a teen-age heroin addict, to a petty drug dealer, to a prisoner all before his 21st birthday. Eventually, he got off the junk and while in prison was schooled by the Mob. He left prison on a mission to dominate the heroin distribution business. His rise was meteoric and made himself and his partners multi-millionaires, rich beyond their wildest dreams. Trusted and trained by Italian mobsters, Joey Gallo and Matthew Madonna, Nicky Barnes set up his own black crime family - The Council - a feared and formidable drug collective. By the late 70’s, Nicky Barnes had become infamous. He had beaten three state cases, making local headlines for his excessive lifestyle and uncanny ability to evade capture. In June 1977, Barnes went national when he posed for the cover of The New York Times Magazine, with the headline “Mister Untouchable". In a hand-tailored light denim suit, a brand new silk red, white, and blue striped tie, his style and posture was more Fortune 500 executive than heroin dealer. Nicky Barnes stared straight out the cover into the prospective reader’s eyes, complimented with the following sub-headline, "This is Nicky Barnes. New York police say he's the biggest drug dealer in Harlem. But can they prove it?" Months later, the federal government answered the question by convicting Barnes and sentencing him to life with no parole. Almost thirty years later, in the summer of 2006, Nicky Barnes sat down with director Marc Levin and producer Mary-Jane Robinson, to discuss his life and legacy. Mr. Untouchable is the definitive gangster movie with a strong cast of characters from both sides of the law; including former members of the council and the DEA agents that worked hard to put Nicky and his gang away. With music and archival footage from the era, Mr. Untouchable is a cinematic retelling of this remarkable story.
