Not a Perfect Documentary, But Nice
30 May 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Exclusive interviews with Danny Greene's family, Federal Government Officials, Mafia associates and Cleveland Police Enforcement, with never seen before photos.

I love who they were able to track down for this. I do wish, however, it had a bit more to it. I feel like it had potential but dropped the ball, and they filled too much time with the nun talking. She was overly dramatic and not a great storyteller. The rest were a real part of the history.

I think that maybe finding a prisoner to interview, but I can see that being a stretch...
