| based on al Capone's life
What no one has yet pointed out is that there are so many references to Capone that it is rather uncanny.Cortez lives in a hotel as did Capone.He is protected by well armed guards as was Capone.A machine gun massacre takes place a clear reference to the St Valentins Day massacre.Furthermore this film has marked similarities with Scarface which was made ac ouple of years later in 1932.I have to say that this is an unjustly forgotten film.Despite some rather dated acting and a rather daft climax this is a gripping and well made film.The crash between a car and a streetcar is quite breathtakingly staged.So it is a film which whilst not in the first rank of gangster films eg Public Enemy and Little Caesar is nevertheless not far behind.
