GANGS OF NEW YORK / JENNY EVERDEANE (CAMERON DIAZ) DAGGER
This dagger was used on screen by Cameron Diaz as "Jenny Everdeane" and Leonardo DiCaprio as "Amsterdam Vallon". Made of resin, the dagger has been fitted with a blood letting tube with a small plastic bottle attached that was easily hidden when Cameron held the dagger in her hand. This dagger was specifically designed to give the effect that the dagger has penetrated the skin. The dagger measures about 12" long. As seen in the screen shots, there are specific scratches on the blade that match this dagger exactly.
Martin Scorsese's Oscar-nominated epic focuses on the rise of Irish and Italian gangs in New York in the mid-1800s. When the leader of the Dead Rabbits is assassinated, his son Amsterdam (Leonardo DiCaprio) seeks out the perpetrator, Bill "The Butcher" Poole (a magnificent Daniel Day-Lewis). Along the way he finds love with a street-smart thief (Cameron Diaz).
