Storyline

In prohibition era Chicago, the ambitious criminal Al Capone moves in to exploit an immense bootleg market for his own profit. Together with his second, the cold-bloodedly practical Frank Nitti, Capone manages to unite the various local crime lords under his leadership and create an incredibly powerful crime syndicate. Through the use of alluring bribery to corrupt the local authorities for his purposes and brutal violence to cow or eliminate the more principled, it seems that Al Capone is above the law. However, the gang makes the critical mistake of irritating the US President one night, and the decision is made to bring Capone to justice. To that end, US Treasury agent Eliot Ness is assigned the task. Ness, who is utterly incensed by the gang violence and corruption that Capone embodies, soon learns that he cannot depend on the local police in this crusade with their rife corruption.

Canned way too soon
25 July 2001 | by gstevens-2See all my reviews

I saw this show early on in its first few episodes and was very favorable impressed by the great performances of Tom Amandes as Elliott Ness( by the way, Mr Amandes looks enough like Jimmy Stewart to almost be his twin brother, I could,'t believe the very close resemblence), and Robert Forsythe, who played Al Capone. Mr Forsythe brought a measure of depth to the usual Capone gangster portrayal. I hope that this show will still be viewable even as reruns. It was canned way too soon.I would even like to see it on vhs. It would be well worth the buying price.
