Overview
Director John Huston was a master of story telling, and Prizzi's Honor was his black comedy masterpiece. It was nominated for eight Academy Awards® including Best Picture, and Anjelica Huston won the Best Supporting Actress Oscar® for her wry performance.

Charley Partanna (Jack Nicholson), a do-it-yourself kind of guy, has been loyal to "The Family" since he can remember. If you need somebody rubbed out, he's your eraser, ready to kill at the drop of a dollar. Boss Don Corrado Prizzi's daughter Maerose (Anjelica Huston), has eyes for Charley, but Charley has already fallen for a sultry hit-woman named Irene Walker (Kathleen Turner). Their unlikely romance hits a snag, however, as Irene and Charley have each been hired to knock off the other!
