Gangster Chronicles
7 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I own a VHS of the Gangster Chronicles from the mini series but I think I may be missing some episodes. I have about 5 hrs without commercials.

I just bought the Gangster Wars on DVD but its condensed to about 2 hrs.

The Godfather was great( at least 1 & 2) but The Gangster Chronicles is better in my opinion as they were real characters. I mean who really is Vito Corleone? Is it Luciano or Genovese or Anastasia?

My father got me interested in Gangster movies when I was a young kid as my father was born and raised in Brownsville,NY. My Grandfather was even involved in a shootout with Murder Inc.

I wish I could go back to the 20s and I would have ran sh*t
