Thanks everyone

It's from "The Mask":

No, it's way older than that. The Mask did a take on it that's all.

Definitely Bogart, can't remember the movie though...

You're right it's not from the Mask but from "The Cincinnati Kid":

No Bogard however.

Not Bogart, Edward G. Robinson--that's even better.

I saw a movie recently on television with Robinson, Bogart and Lauren Bacall. Something about gangsters in a hotel during a hurricaine. Classic film noir from the nineteen 40s.

Nowadays many young people switch channels the moment they notice the movie is black-and-white.

The movie was Key Largo. Saw it when I was a kid.

Thanks everyone, and weeks you are correct, it was Edward G. Robinson. Found it a few minutes after posting the question.

Funnily enough i also found some other classics from good old Gangster Johnny played by Ralph Foody:

Gangster 'Johnny': Hey! I tell you what I'm gonna give you, Snakes. I'm gonna give you to the count of 10 to get your ugly, yellow, no-good keister off my property before I pump your guts full of lead! One, two, ten!
[machine gun fire]
Gangster 'Johnny': Keep the change, you filthy animal!

Brilliant! And i find it a shame that someone would not sit through a black and white movie. I absolutely love it and watched them all the time as a kid circa the 90's. Oh well

Film Noir rocks. Edgar G. Robinson played against type in a film where he plays a boring bank clerk who gets involved with an evil woman who guides him to his demise in Scarlet Street.

Out of the Past with Robert Mitchum is a classic as well.

Dig those shadows and dark lighting.

My fave modern noir is Romeo is Bleeding with Gary Oldman and Lena Olin. The soundtrack is beautiful, by Mark Isham, I think. "I know better now" by A.J. Croce is on that album, and it's a beautiful wonderful song.

that gangster johnny drop is used hilariously by mcauley culkin's character in "home alone (2?)" to scare away some bad guys.
and in this case it get's pronounced "yellah".
my kid quotes it all the time.
i just say "one,two,ten" when i need him to get it done right now.
