Rated 5 out of 5 by dobyns5383 King of the Gypsies is classic!
I have this movie on VHS and wanted it on DVD format for a while now but it was not available. Now Walmart has a very good price on it and it's now available! The book and film offer an interesting look inside the world of Gypsies here in the US.
Look for a young Eric Roberts (brother of Julia) in a starring role as Dave, the new King of the Gypsies.
When his grandfather King Zharko Stepanowicz (played by Sterling Hayden) passes away, he passes the throne on to his grandson, Dave rather than his son, Groffo. Grandma Queen Rachel is played by Shelly Winters, also in this great film are Susan Sarandon as Rose, Judd Hirsch as Dave's father Groffo who is angered that he is passed over for his son as the new King of the Gypsies. Also in the movie are Dave's young sister Tia as Brooke Shields and Annette O'Toole as Dave's girlfriend Sharon. A true classic movie many will consider worth watching again and again!
