Editorial Reviews

They fixed the World Series. They built Las Vegas. They terrorized America with their vicious murders and fearless robberies. They are men named Bugsy Siegal, Al Capone, John Dillinger, Pretty Boy Floyd, and Lucky Luciano. And, for the first time, THE AMERICAN GANGSTER tells the true story behind their ruthless rise to wealth and power. Filled with vintage film and actual photographs, THE AMERICAN GANGSTER is a gripping look at the birth of organized crime. From prohibition to prostitution, from gangland massacres to gambling empires, their most infamous deeds are chronicled in shocking detail. Even more explosive than the movies they inspired, such as Scarface and The Godfather, are the true histories of the brilliant, brutal gangsters who turned the American Dream into an ongoing nightmare.

Format: DVD
I absolutely loved this documentary!There is so much information in this film that you can watch it time and time again and pick up more tidbits. There are many photos of Bugsy,Capone,Luciano as well as many others.There is plenty of live footage of court-room drama with Virginia Hill and quotes from the most famous mobsters.This is true American history dating back to the arrival of many European immigrants to Ellis Island,NY.Even the back-round music is great.Dennis Farina's narration is captivating and he is one with first-hand knowledge being an ex Chicago cop for 18 years in the 60's and 70's! I was still processing this documentary for days after viewing it.This would be an invaluable addition to any crime history enthusiast!

Excellent on the history of U.S.crime. I found out things I
never knew. Especially interesting is crime in the Al Capone
era and after WW II. I think I shall buy one for my friend in
Texas.
