Gangster Joe Valachi is a marked man in the same joint where mob boss Don Vito Genovese is imprisoned and he's forced to co-operate with the DA in exchange for protection.
The film's director Terence Young once said of this movie: "In The Valachi Papers (1972) we show all the real characters - such as Lucky Luciano, Murder Inc. head Albert Anastasia - and the eliminations which were almost a ritual".
"Cut it off!" Bender to his two henchman as they grab Gap to get a "present" for Don Vito's girlfriend.
As Valachi drives during his first job in 1930, a 1960s Ford is in the left lane next to him.
