As usual for bottom of the barrel 1950's re-enactments clothing. furniture, and even automobiles are strictly of late 1940s/early 1950s styles not 1920s and 1930s especially in Kansas City Massacre, even though names from gangsters killed in the 1930s, such as Clyde Barrow, Bonnie Parker and Pretty Boy Floyd, are tossed around like confetti.

Though set in the 1930s, the film's sets, costumes and many of the cars seen in it are all from the 1950s. See more »
Lighten up...it wasn't a real movie to begin with.
It was, just as it says at the top of the page, several episodes of the syndicated TV series, GANGBUSTERS, stitched together to make a feature-length film for the drive-in and grind-show theatres, and the producers were only interested in getting some more return on their investment...and didn't much care if some theatre patron came away miffed because he had already seen this mess for free on television, scattered across several 30-minute episodes. Each of those told a single story of some gangster or gangs, through some law-enforcement agent, and sometimes had different narrators telling the story.
Based on Philip H. Lord's radio program, and the comic strip of the same name. This is not one of the FBI-endorsed films or, to be exact, television series.
