Legendary mob boss Al Capone (Jason Robards) goes to war with bitter rival 'Bugs' Moran (Ralph Meeker) and the Chicago streets run red with blood. Clever use of voiceover lends the film a documentary feel, while the flashbacks stick close to the facts without losing the thriller momentum. Corman turns this well-known story into a staccato time-bomb that remains continually enthralling as it ticks relentlessly towards its inevitable conclusion. 'Part of the Edinburgh International Film Festival'.
This film is not currently showing in cinemas.
