R | | Biography, Crime, Drama
The story of the rise and fall of the infamous Chicago gangster Al Capone and the control he exhibited over the city during the prohibition years.
Made its first appearance on DVD in the U.S. in 2011.
Big Jim Colosimo:
If Prohibition comes in, it ain't gonna last six months. You take beer and booze away from people, they're gonna be sore as hell. One thing the politicians can't afford is to have the voters mad at them.
Multiple scenes show Thompson submachine guns with drums inserted and the bolt forward. The actors then retract the bolt and start firing. This is not possible with a live Thompson. The bolt must be retracted to insert or remove the drum. When the bolt goes forward, it fires. Unless of course, the drum is empty. Thank you.
Opening credits prologue: BROOKLYN MAY 6, 1918
Most versions are missing an explicit nude scene by Susan Blakely, probably due to the fact that bootleg copies are sourced from TV prints.
