Released the same year as The Public Enemy, this brutal Prohibition-era crime thriller is that film's most serious rival for the title of kingpin of American gangster movies. Edward G. Robinson plays Caesar Enrico "Rico" Bandello, a small-time crook who heads to Chicago in search of fortune and respect. Once there he quickly seizes control of the Vettori gang, but that isn't enough for Rico, whose ambition swells with every hood that he guns down in cold blood.
Later remade with Al Pacino, this 1932 gangster drama charts the rise of a ruthless crime boss modelled on notorious US mobster Al Capone.
