Graham observed:

"If I recall correctly, Joe Pesci's character in the movie THE PUBLIC EYE ("Bernzie") was based on Weegee."

Yes, it was, but wasn't he turned into a kind of private eye? Didn't someone hire him to take specific pictures? But of course, he fell for his target, Barbara Hershey. That's what I vaguely remember. The movie seemed pretty cliche to me although Pesci and Hershey were pretty good
(although they've both been better).
