i think that's Miller's Crossing, right?
Shame not many people in this thread.
I like movies a lot.
"This was your great-grandfather's war watch, and he wore it every day he was in the war. Then when he had done his duty, he went home to your
great-grandmother, took the watch off and put it in an old coffee can. And in that can it stayed 'til your granddad was called upon by his country to
go overseas and fight the Germans once again. This time they called it World War Two. Your great-grandfather gave this watch to your granddad for good
Your granddad was facing death, and he knew it. None of those boys had any illusions about ever leaving that island alive. So three days before the
Japanese took the island, your granddad asked a gunner on an Air Force transport named Winocki, a man he had never met before in his life, to deliver
to his infant son, who he had never seen in the flesh, his gold watch. Three days later, your granddad was dead. But Winocki kept his word. After the
war was over, he paid a visit to your grandmother, delivering to your infant father, his Dad's gold watch. This watch. This watch was on your
Daddy's wrist when he was shot down over Hanoi. He was captured and put in a Vietnamese prison camp. He knew if the gooks ever saw the watch that
it'd be confiscated; taken away. The way your Dad looked at it, this watch was your birthright. He'd be damned if any slopes were gonna put their
greasy yellow hands on his boy's birthright. So he hid it in the one place he knew he could hide something. His ass. Five long years, he wore this
watch up his ass. And then he died of dysentery, he gave me the watch. I hid this uncomfortable hunk of metal up my ass for two years. Then, after
seven years, I was sent home to my family. And now, little man, I give the watch to you".
Name that movie.
