Product Description

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.

HASH(0xb1616078) out of 5 stars A true-crime must see! May 10 2008
By Wa - Published on
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!

HASH(0xb1615e64) out of 5 stars Should have been better, but for $ 6 June 18 2016

Should have been better , but for $ 6.00 you get what you pay for . 48 minutes they can barely only touch on some of the major movers and shakers and events in the formation of the National Syndicate , therefore they left out how Luciano and Lansky met . They made errors in some places like Lepke did not run the Garment District for Luciano ,Lepke had his own gang or they said Lucchese and Albert Anastasia were two of the four assassins who killed Maranzano . According to Joe Valachi the killers were all Jewish , thus unknown to Maranzano . Tommy Lucchese was the underboss of an ally of Marazano , and also he was to finger (point out) Maranzano for the assassins . Well I hope Dennis Farina got paid well R.I.P. .
