From his hood roots in New York, to the St. Valentine's Day Massacre and "king of racketeering" reign in Chicago, to the end of his days in Florida, Capone is the definitive biopic of the world's most infamous gangster. Ben Gazzara (Road House, The Big Lebowski) is Al Capone, submerged in the bustling and bootlegging underbelly of the 1920s. He's surrounded by a gritty ensemble cast featuring Sylvester Stallone (Rocky) as arch-criminal Frank Nitti, John Cassavetes (Rosemary's Baby) as New York gang lord Frankie Yale, Susan Blakely as Capone's flapper love interest Iris Crawford, and Harry Guardino (Dirty Harry) as Chicago crime boss Johnny Torrio. Produced by Roger Corman, this feverishly paced and stylistic crime drama in the spirit of The Godfather and a precursor to Goodfellas holds no punches when it comes to portraying violence and brutality that came with the territory and the times.

"The man who made the twenties roar! Now, after 45 years, his true story can be told!"
