Synopsis by Betsy Boyd
The Gangsters: Bugsy, Dutch & Al is a documentary profiling three famous gangsters from the era of prohibition. First-generation thugs, Bugsy Siegel, Dutch Schultz, and Al Capone were among the pioneering tough guys who started the gangster tradition in America. This documentary tells the story of their rise to frightful power, and their ability to control entire police departments and influence government officials. By running gambling and prostitution rings, and bootlegging precious liquor, these men made immense fortunes for themselves, and left behind a might-makes-right gangster legacy.
