Trivia

The final scene was shot at Barbra Streisand's estate in Holmby Hills, California. See more »

Goofs

Multiple scenes show Thompson submachine guns with drums inserted and the bolt forward. The actors then retract the bolt and start firing. This is not possible with a live Thompson. The bolt must be retracted to insert or remove the drum. When the bolt goes forward, it fires. Unless of course, the drum is empty. Thank you. See more »

Quotes

Capone: There should be a law against women drinking.
Crawford: Well, I think there is.

Interesting look on the life of Al Capone.
15 October 2003 | by Captain_CouthSee all my reviews

I found Capone to be a very interesting film. The action scenes were well staged and the acting was surprisingly good. Ben Gazzara was excellent as Capone. He managed to capture Al Capone's VD induced psychosis very well. It's a shame that this film was never put out on video in the US. Unlike most biopics, I found this one to be very entertaining. Yo, check out Stallone as Frank "The Enforcer" Nitti

Recommended, if you can find it.

B+
