The St. Valentine’s Day Massacre

The film is a slam-bang, gutsy recreation of The St. Valentine's Day Massacre, a 1929 gangland sensation of Chicago. Well-written, and presented in semi-documentary style, it features Jason Robards as Al Capone. Salty dialog and violence are motivated properly, and solid production values recreate a by-gone era.

Robards is excellent as Capone, and Ralph Meeker, as Moran, is equally chilling. A large cast spotlights George Segal, who with brother David Canary act as Meeker’s ace gunmen.

Clint Ritchie, playing in very good fashion the ever-smiling, dapper Jack McGurn, one of Capone’s key aides, is placed by his boss in charge of eliminating Moran and his mob. Latter – through a stroke of fate – escaped the bloodbath, and Capone was never proven the man behind it all.
