The story of a group of friends in turn of the century New York, from their early days as street hoods to their rise in the world of organized crime. As their crime empire expands, they have to deal with many problems, including their own differing opinions on how to run their business, the local Godfather, and the psychotic Mad Dog Coll.

When "Lucky" Luciano and the others bring in "Mad Dog" Coll to offer him a chance to move to California, they get into a discussion about Coll's style of killing, to which Coll slaps "Bugsy" Siegel on the knee and laughs out "There's nothing so pretty as the back of a man's head!" Ironically, when Bugsy Siegel was murdered in 1947, he was shot through the back of the head. See more »

This is a good mafia movie,with good story telling,good acting and good atmosphere.I really enjoy mafia movies,and therefore I think this movie is underrated.The story is not unlike other mafia movies,about robbing each other and killing everyone in the way,but off course with class. Highly underrated,good movie.
