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

all the tough genes didn't go to Al......
21 December 1999 | by (chicago,il USA) – See all my reviews

Another movie where a twist of historical fact can prove fascinating and make for as much, if not more entertainment than some that take pains to stick to the facts. After a street fight during which a rival is killed, Al dupes brother Jimmy into believing that he committed the crime. Jimmy leaves New York on the run, landing in a small midwestern town, where almost inadvertently, he becomes sheriff. Hearing of his older siblings "success", and longing to renew familial ties, He makes a trip to the windy city. The meeting that ensues leaves Jimmy with a choice, does he remain on the good side of the coin? Or does he take advantage of his brother's offer of easy money, wine , women, and song? A splendidly scripted movie, and the actors bring off the story in magnificent fashion. TV movies should aspire to be this good.
