A composite of three re-edited episodes from the 1952 TV series, Gangbusters, released to theatres in 1957 as a feature film. Gang Busters (1954) was a similar effort.
As usual for bottom of the barrel 1950's re-enactments clothing. furniture, and even automobiles are strictly of late 1940s/early 1950s styles not 1920s and 1930s especially in Kansas City Massacre, even though names from gangsters killed in the 1930s, such as Clyde Barrow, Bonnie Parker and Pretty Boy Floyd, are tossed around like confetti.
Though set in the 1930s, the film's sets, costumes and many of the cars seen in it are all from the 1950s.
