Alberto de Mendoza plays the unsavory title role in El Jefe (The Chief). Holding his suburban neighborhood in thrall with a cotillion of muscular henchman, crime boss Mendoza is as crafty as he is brutal. Reporter Duilio Marizio hopes to bring down Mendoza's reign of terror, but instead ends up as one of El Jefe's paid stooges. The villain's downfall comes about when he momentarily loses his cool and commits a senseless murder; his subsequent behavior exposes him to one and all as the craven coward he really is.
