Brian De Palma’s 1983 gangster pic “Scarface” has become indispensable viewing for genre fans and hip-hoppers alike, and no single line from the film is as memorable as the now iconic “Say hello to my little friend.” The quote-ready manstra is relayed by Al Pacino as he launches a grenade across a bullet-ridden room, and has since graced the front of t-shirts, movie posters and every other bit of assorted merchandise you can think of. But while the line itself is epic, it’s Pacino’s flawless delivery of it that catapulted it into one of cinema’s greatest sentences.
And that raises a great what-if…what if Pacino delivered it another way? What if Pacino added extra words? What if he stumbled? Well, wonder no more because now we have never-before-seen outtakes from the bonus features of the new “Scarface” limited edition Blu-ray hitting September 6. In the video below, watch Pacino try the line again and again until it culminates with the classic one we know and love.
