A secretive cadre of crime - The Black Hand - has tightened its grip on New York City's Little Italy of the early 1900s. Merchants are threatened, some horribly beaten. Citizens cower in fear rather than testify about crimes they've witnessed. And everyone dreads the extortion notes that say Pay or Die. But police lieutenant Joe Petrosino is determined to end the spree of terror. He sets up a special squad of investigators, systematically attempts to root out the criminals and makes a discovery he never expected: The Black Hand is directly tied to the Mafia. Ernest Borgnine plays Petrosino in this hard-hitting, fact-based crime saga directed by Richard Wilson, who created a stir the prior year with the gangster saga Al Capone (starring Rod Steiger).

Loosely based on Joe Petrosino, the Cop who battled the Mafia and Black Hand. Borgnine is magnificent, as always.Published 14 months ago by Marvelous Mal

Not to give anything away - but the dinner scene, almost at the last 4-5 minutes of the movie - is one of the best ever made.
Two words - "I am"
Great movie that tells it like it was and (is?) Borgnine was born to play this role, interesting and exciting from beginning to end.+Published 21 months ago by go jo
