Storyline

Frankie Kane is brought up in a Catholic orphanage and befriends Martin Cabell, a Jewish law student whose sister Julie becomes Frankie's sweetheart. At sixteen, Frankie learns that he is himself Jewish and therefore has to be moved to a Jewish home. That prospect proves so awful that he runs away - and goes bad. Years later, he returns to the district and gets involved with a crime syndicate that his old pal Martin, now assistant district attorney, has pledged to clean up. Frankie however, bumps in to Julie again and, finding he still loves her, decides to help the straight-shooting Martin smash the syndicate. Written by alfiehitchie

Unforgettable
13 January 2003 | by LovpupsSee all my reviews

I thought this was a great movie. The different paths that it takes you down and places it takes you too. If you like gangsters, crime, love and hate this is the movie to see.

It had a different ending then I was expecting, but that is what make the movie good you had no idea how the movie was going to end.

I would watch the movie again if given the chance.
