 AMERICAN GANGSTER 
Written bySteven Zaillian
FINAL SHOOTINGSCRIPT
July 27,2006
1 EXT. JAZZ CLUB - DAY1
A tall, handsome man in a dark suit emerges from a LincolnTowncar and enters a small, basement R&B/Jazz club.
2 INT. JAZZ CLUB - DAY2
He approaches a booth, says something in the din to the menthere, then calmly shoots them and exits.
AMERICAN GANGSTER 3 EXT. HARLEM STREET - DAY (NOVEMBER)3
Bumpy Johnson, an elderly but still sturdy black man,elegantly dressed - cashmere overcoat, gloves, Homburg -stands in falling snow atop a flatbed truck - as he doesevery Thanksgiving - tossing down turkeys to the poor -like a benign king.
 
Legend: HarlemA younger man, the gunman from the club - Frank Lucas -Bumpy's driver/bodyguard/collector/protege - watches frombelow.
4 INT/EXT. STREET / DISCOUNT EMPORIUM - DAY (NOVEMBER)4
Whispering gunfire from a television set veiled byforeground snow: Soldiers in the jungles of Vietnam in1970. A rich, cultured, authoritative voice offers:
BUMPY O/S
This is the problem. This is what'swrong with America.The war footage multiplies by twenty: a stack of TVs withprice tags dangling from the knobs behind a display window.
BUMPY O/S
It's gotten so big you can't find yourway.People on the sidewalk, out of respect or fear, part to letFrank and Bumpy and Bumpy's German shepherd pass.
BUMPY
The corner grocery's a supermarket.Candy store's a MacDonald's. And thisplace.
(MORE)(CONT)2. 4 CONTINUED:4BUMPY (CONT'D)
Where's the pride of ownership here?Where's the personal service? Doesanybody work here?Inside, the emporium is vast, with aisles that seem tostretch off into infinity. The TVs give way to a displaywindow full of Japanese stereo componentry.
BUMPY
What right do they have cutting out thesuppliers, pushing all the middlemen out,buying direct from the manufacturer -Sony this, Toshiba that, all them Chinks -putting Americans out of work?He's not really asking Frank, so Frank doesn't answer.
 
BUMPY
What am I supposed to do with a placelike this, Frank? Who am I supposed toask for, the assistant manager?(pause)This is the problem. This is the way itis now: You can't find the heart ofanything to stick the knife.Bumpy stops before a display of cameras and stares in.They're all pointed at him as a pain grips his chest and hesinks to his knees. Frank kneels down.
FRANK 
What is it?Bumpy seems unable to speak, looks to Frank confused.
FRANK 
Somebody call an ambulance!But the store suddenly seems empty. Frank yells into theemporium but can't be heard above the Muzak and the cashregisters ringing up sales Bumpy will never see a piece of.Looking up at Frank, Bumpy manages weakly -
BUMPY
Forget it, Frank. No one's in charge.
5 EXT. BUMPY'S APARTMENT - DAY5
Limousines from the funeral disgorge mourners: family,friends, celebrities, politicians. Cops on horseback movethrough the enormous crowd that has gathered to watch. FBIagents in cars snap pictures with long lenses of Italianmobsters like Albert Tosca.
