What a terrific film
9 August 2004 | by (America) – See all my reviews

The trouble is I can't find it for sale on DVD anywhere? Actually I haven't even seen it offered on VHS(not that that would interest me). It's just surprising research wise. That on the entire internet I can't even find a picture of this movie's cover? Maybe it's because it was a TV series? Although I can think of many other TV series that have been heavily marketed.

I seen this film and was impressed, because it's one of the very few 1930's gangster movies I've ever seen that wasn't lame or cheesy. It displayed a lot of realism and showed just how ruthless and cold these people really were. It also showed how intelligent and cunning they were. I was surprised to find it was at one time a TV series, especially one 30 years old. Since it was set in the 30's I could have believed the movie came out last year and I just was in the dark until now.

Amazon.com doesn't have it, or my SEVERAL tries to locate it have failed. Any help would be much appreciated :)
