Netherlands released, PAL/Region 2 DVD: LANGUAGES: English ( Dolby Digital 2.0 ), French ( Dolby Digital 2.0 ), Italian ( Dolby Digital 2.0 ), Dutch ( Subtitles ), English ( Subtitles ), French ( Subtitles ), Italian ( Subtitles ), WIDESCREEN (1.85:1), SPECIAL FEATURES: Interactive Menu, Scene Access, Trailer(s), SYNOPSIS: Ben Gazzara stars in this low-level depiction of legendary gangster Al Capone, who rose to command the mob underworld in 1920's Chicago. Born in Brooklyn, Capone joins his first gang at the age of 11. From there, he graduates to the infamous "Five Points Gang" run by Johnny Torrio (Harry Guardino). After moving to Chicago a few years later and wiping out Torrio's crimeboss uncle, Capone becomes Torrio's right hand man. Capone becomes head of the area's prostitution and racketeering business, but, as his mind deteriorates from syphillis, so does his empire. There's not much to recommend here, aside from a surprisingly good appearance by Sylvester Stallone as fellow gangster Frank Nitti. Gazzara is frankly awful in the title role and producer Roger Corman uses stock shootout footage from other gangster films, including footage of the St. Valentine's Day Massacre from his own, earlier movie on the subject. ...Capone

4.0 out of 5 stars A Great Retelling! 29 Mar 2007
Format:DVD
This 1975 version of the Capone story is fast, and authentic. It has some shocking action, which is depicted very realisticly. It is more blood thirsty than the Rod Steiger version, but it is more believble. My one complaint is the sound quality. I had to put the volume up and at one point subtitles, this is more to do with the way Ben Gazzara delivers his lines. He has a cigar permanently in the side of his mouth and cotton woll in his jowls, well... it worked for Brando! Oh and watch out for a young Sly Stallone as Frank Nitti!

5.0 out of 5 stars Kinky film with great cast 14 Dec 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
When I got this video, I was expecting it to be trash like all the others. Wrong. This film is wonderous. Susan Blakely-a great performance as the feisty Iris Crawford, Harry Guardino's wonderous performance as Johnny Torrio, Sylvester Stallone-best known for his Rocky films-does a great back-stabbing, trechorus Frank Nitti, and Ben Gazzara-My God! He was ultimatly the best screen Capone ever.I love this film. I would reccomend this to anyone who saw-and liked-The Untouchables with Robert De Niro.

The film is wonderful. A biography-cum-action film with some great stunts. Sylvester Stallone,despite this being one of his first starring roles, was utterly fantastic as Frank Nitti. The (then) 25 year old Susan Blakely was a wonderful love interest for Gazzara. Harry Guardino's Johnny Torrio was faultless, and Ben Gazzara was the best screen Al Capone ever (after Robert De Niro).Absoulutly wonderful.

5.0 out of 5 stars MOST UNDERRATED MAFIA MOVIE EVER! 5 Mar 2001
By Carlo
Format:VHS Tape
I HAVE SEEN THIS MOVIE OVER 5 TIMES AND BELIEVE THAT BEN GAZZARRA PUTS IN AN EXTRAORDINARY EFFORT AS AL CAPONE. HIS ABILITY TO BRING CAPONE TO THE SCREEN WITH SUCH INTENSITY IS INCREDIBLE. UNFORTUNATELY, THIS IS ONE THOSE MANY MASTERPIECES WHICH SO OFTEN IS OVERLOOKED BY THE GENERAL PUBLIC. IT IS HARDLY AVAILABLE ON VIDEOTAPE AND, THUS, IT IS DESTINED TO BE A CULT FILM IN THE ANNALS OF MAFIA MOTION PICTURES.
