I Liked It!!

This movie is a film which every Chicagoan should love. The historical account of the St Valentine's Day Massacre was on which mesmerized millions of people, and how it restructured the syndicate's power back in the 1930's.! The 1929 catastrophe underlined the ruthless struggle with which the Irish and the Italians were engaged in. Presently, Boston is the only city in the United States where the Irish rule organized crime. The Italians run the most prominent criminal mobs in virtually every other city! Bugs Moran and Al Capone were two criminal leaders who operated very differently. Their personal agreements with one another established ground-rules about demographics. Capone had the south and west sections of the city, and Moran had the north. The whole predicament manifested itself when these organizations perceived that one was invading on another one's turf!! This heinous violence had the entire city of Chicago by the throat. The movie "The St Valentine's Day Massacre" depicted the precarious scenario very astutely! Jason Robards played Al Capone brilliantly, this is remarkable, especially considering that he is not even Italian! The directing and the authentication of Chicago in 1929 was excellent! I have an affinity for gangster movies, and this one is one of my favorites!! See this film if you possibly can!!
