Little Carmine - was he the smartest of the mafia capos?

I know that Clesver was profitable, but they never went into how profitable. Little Carmine was the main financial investor, and had been involved in b-movie production before.

Like his father, he was a good businessman. He was astounded when Phil didnt look at things from a money perspective, and took everything so personally.

He reaped all the financial benefit with almost none of the risk

Being happy was his goal that’s why he survived. I don’t think the guy was a “mastermind” as the video implied.

I also wondered if Little Carmine was parody of Michael Franzene.

If you’re like me, you realize that Little Carmine took control as boss of the his father’s family at the sit-down where Butch gave up Phil. Tony thought Butch was calling the shots, but Carmine was in control the whole time.

He won the show, if that’s possible. And got to keep all the esplanade money.

“If there’s one thing my father taught me, it’s this, a pint of blood costs more than a gallon of gold”

Which sort of lends to him being smarter than he lets in.
