Drunk does not necessarily mean bad. See fig. 1 Richard Burton, Peter O'Toole, etc.

Anne - it was the original concept for the story, but it was felt that people wouldn’t care that much about Jews - or found it more difficult to believe they’d be in a gang.

They would have changed the name to Lower East Side Story?
Pete VO

Anne- Excellent observation, as I understand that was the seed of the idea for the story. There were Jews and Irish who fought on the Lower East Side

My grandfather told stories of being in fights with Irish kids constantly
