The St. Valentine's Day Massacre

The terrible true-life events of February 14, 1929 thrust gangster Al Capone into the national spotlight, but marked the beginning of the end of Chicago’s criminal empire. Rival Chicago mobsters Al Capone and Bugs Moran battle for control of the city’s crime element, which leads to a bloody showdown in which Capone’s men, dressed as policeman, kill seven key members of Moran’s gang in a warehouse. The film’s sets carefully replicate prohibition-era Chicago, and a voice-over narration adds historical details and contributes to a documentary like feel.
