Trivia

After dealing in pompous, semi-documentary style, with the lives, crimes, and deaths of such well known real life persons as John Dillinger, Ma Barker, Clyde Barrow, Bonnie Parker, and Pretty Boy Floyd, among others, and of course, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and its pursuit of these people, this film carries the usual disclaimer over the end credits, "All events, characters, firms and institutions in this photoplay are fictional and any similarity to any persons, living or dead, or to any actual events or to any actual firms or institutions is coincidental and unintentional," followed by the names of the cast members who portrayed these very people.

Goofs

Though set in the 1930s, the film's sets, costumes and many of the cars seen in it are all from the 1950s. See more »

Low-Brow 50's Govt. Propaganda...Edited from TV's "Gangbusters" (1952)
27 October 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Dizzy, Dumb, and Downright Inaccurate with just about Everything. Where to Start? Why does IMDb put a Date of 1960 on the Thing and then in the Synopsis say it was "released to theaters in 1957"?

The 1950's were Ripe with Pro-Govt Propaganda from the Very Start of the Conservative Decade. Government Agencies, Law-Enforcement, Hell even the "Dog Catcher" could do No Wrong. It was an attempt to "Control" the Population, Shut-Up, Don't Ask Questions, Toe the Line, and be Good Consumers, No Worries, Big Brother is "Looking Out for You".

For the Most Part...It Worked.

"Gangbusters" was Produced for TV in 1952, this is a Compilation of Episodes Released to Movie Theaters in 1957. It is Riddled with Ridiculous Didactics, Smug, and Condescending. A Product of its Era. With Ed Wood Like Acting and Editing, the Film is Disorienting as it Clunks its way through every "Headliner" of Thirties "Gangsterdom".

Most of the Budget was probably Spent on "Tommy Guns" and Bullet Drums. It's pretty Bad even for Early TV. Kids of the Day Enjoyed it as Entertainment, but for Adults it's as Low-Brow as it gets. There are even a few Scenes that Reek of Exploitation with Pistols in the Garter-Belt and Extremely Tight Sweaters and Skirts.

What a Hoot!

Note...Good title though.
