The film's opening prologue states: "In 1946, America made a gift to the Mafia ! It deported to Italy (from where he came) one Salvatore Lucania, alias Charles 'Lucky' Luciano, kingpin New York racketeer. Sentenced to from 30 to 50 years imprisonment in 1936 on charges brought against him by District Attorney, Thomas E. Dewey, he was paroled - after serving only 9 years - for - 'special services rendered to the United States Armed Forces during World War two', by the same Mr. Dewey, who had since become Governor of the State of New York".
When Lucky Luciano is deported in the mid-Forties, far more modern buildings can be seen on the New York skyline.
