    A Bronx Tale (1993, USA) by Robert DeNiro Main Cast: Chazz Palmenteri; Robert DeNiro; Company: B.T. Films Inc. The movie tells the story of Calogero a boy growing up in the Bronx. He watches Sonny (the gangster boss of the quarter) killing another guy, but did not tell the police during a line-up. Sonny starts to help and advice Calogero with which Calogero’s father is not that content. Although Sonny is a gangster boss he teaches Calogero to be a decent man. Scene: gambling male adults betting Transgressive in company 0:44:38-0:46:21: betting In this scene Calogero and Sonny with his gang are at the horse races. Everybody shouts frenetically. Their horse seems like a save winner, but then the “bad luck guy” appears and Sonny rips his betting cards to peaces. And indeed the certain winner stills looses. The “bad luck guy” then wants to give C. a good advice for the next run, but C. leaves. The guy stays and looks on a paper on which horse to bet next. Except the “bad luck guy” no one’s behaviour will be considered as addiction. They loose and leave without big regret. Sonny just says “pity”. It is different with the bad luck guy. He shouts even louder and madder and stays to make a next bet. Also in this scene an indicator for bad luck (the guy) is presented. And in this movie the “indicator” of bad luck works. Luck becomes controllable. Clip: 112

Scene: gambling male adults adolescent or children table games tobacco transgressive 0:32:11-0:37:31: gambling In this scene young Calogero enters the gambling cellar. There are a lot of noises, everybody shouts and wave with dollar bills in his hands. Some are smoking. Sonny wants Calogero to throw the dices for him. C. starts to do it and after a while making a lot of money for Sonny. During this gambling Sonny throws out other gamblers as they are “bad luck”. The other gambler has to go, as his face distracts the boy. There is no influence of people on dices anyway, but a lot of gamblers believe in “signs” and signals. As everybody is shouting and seems to be really mad about the game it is indeed possible that audience will consider this behaviour as addiction. In addition Sonny lets a young boy throw the dices for him and hence promotes gambling to a kid. This will for sure evoke disapproval no matter if the gambling behaviour is considered as addiction or not. Clip: 111

    A Hole in the Head (1959, USA) by Frank Capra Main Cast: Frank Sinatra Company: Sincap Productions The movie tells the story of Tony a widower and wannabe businessman. He is often broke, but nevertheless tries to keep his hotel and a façade of success. An important part of his life plays Ally his 11-year-old son. He tries to lend, as many times before, money from his brother, who is a role model of a “protestant-work-ethic” businessman. Scene: gambling male adults betting Transgressive in company 1:38:24-1:39:20: betting In this scene Tony is at a dog race trying to persuade his old friend Jerry (who is a millionaire) to fund Tony’s project. Everybody is well dressed. When the race starts everybody starts to shout. Except Tony and Jerry, who are discussing some blue-prints. Both do not care for the game, but when Tony realizes that their dog has won he is very happy (the win is the money he needs to keep his hotel). This scene cannot be seen as addiction, as the main characters are not taking any interest in the race. Clip: 211

Scene: gambling male adults betting Transgressive money problem 1:40:56-1:42:49: betting Tony won in a dog race. Although Tony really needs the money he bets the money on the next race, as he wants to impress Jerry, who stakes also his whole win. During the race Tony starts to shout and gets excited about the game. Jerry and his wife only look irritated about Tony’s behaviour. This scene is more likely be seen as showing addiction, as Tony continues to bet and with a bigger stake. Also the disapproval of the others (Jerry + wife) indicates a kind of “odd the norm” behaviour of Tony. Clip: 212
