Never before has a gallery of cops, robbers, and daredevil crooks ever been assembled into one collection. Using FBI and police film, archival footage, and rare photographs, this story traces the life of Al "Scarface" Capone who, during the prohibition era of the 1920s, built an empire that netted over $100 million in one year. The hard times of the 1920s and 1930s brought forth the romanticized public enemies John Dillinger, Bonnie Parker, and Clyde Barrow. It is all here, the dirty deeds of Legs Diamond, Dutch Schultz, "Pretty Boy" Floyd, "Machine Gun" Kelly, and other depression gangsters and lawmen, including J. Edgar Hoover and Melvin Purvis.
Bonus Feature: Life in the 1920s and 1930s - From the Hearst Archive Library, ninety-six short newsreel segments, once shown in local motion picture theatres, capture what life was like outside of the "underworld" in the 20s and 30s.
