Storyline

While Al Capone works his way up from top-dog street gang thug captain in Chicago to U.S. crime king, his brother Jimmy Capone chooses the righteous way, actually with father's blessing, leaving Illinois for small town Harmony in Nebraska, where he adopts the alias Richard Hart, marries teacher Kathleen, has offspring and becomes its incorruptible town marshal, with a loyal Indian deputy. When his efficient fight against Al's illegal alcohol trade starts to bite financially, the gang's top lawyer is sent to buy 'Hart' or order his death, but recognizes Jimmy and arranges a fraternal reunion in Chicago. Yet money nor threats can turn Jimmy bad... Written by KGF Vissers

Perhaps a bit ambitious for a TV movie .............
4 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The film covers almost a lifetime of the notorious Capone family with a limited budget that gets in the way. Concentrating on the wronged youngest Capone's flight from family business, the movie bounces back and forth between Chicago and rural Nebraska. Character development suffers as expected with so much rush to cover the vast time span. While I like Eric Roberts, his portrayal of Al Capone comes across as similar to any one of dozens of bad guy characters he has played. "The Lost Capone" is not a bad film, just one that could have benefited from a bigger budget, and a little script tightening. ................. - MERK
