Trivia

This was Roger Corman's first directorial project for one of the major studios (Twentieth Century-Fox). After approximately 15 years experience as a producer/director of low budget productions, it was no surprise that Corman wrapped this production ahead of schedule and well under budget. See more »

Goofs

Pay close attention to the massacre outside the church. The man firing the pump shotgun fires and fires, but he doesn't reload at all. See more »

gangster films don't get much better than this
11 January 2004 | by (california) – See all my reviews

When the untouchables were first broadcast on tv I enjoyed them.This movie is a continuation of that kind of entertainment even having some of the guest stars that were on that show like Paul Richards,Leo Gordon and Frank Silvera.Jason Robards plays Capone in his own style,not comparing him to other actors who have had the Capone part I would say his performance showed he was talented.A talent that would really show itself about a year later when he played the part of Cheyenne in"once upon a time in the west".In this gangster film a lot of quality is shown in the dress, cars and settings.The film is also in color which put it a notch above many previous mob films.The shooting scenes give the audience their fill.In one scene Bugs Moran and one of his men are doing a hit from a window,while his man lets loose with a chopper he uses a repeating shotgun(that's a guess)faster than anyone I've ever seen in the movies.What really could of gotten this movie a 10 is a bit more music,that kind of music that plays low but works on the emotions and nerves.Having a small part in the movie is Alex Rocco,later he would go on to play Moe Green In the "godfather".Curious dept: When Al Capone is being interviewed in Florida he is asked a question by a reporter with a moustache.To me the actor looks like Tony Dow from leave it to beaver.Anyone know?
