Storyline

In the early part of 20th Century America gangs of ruthless, lawless desperados roamed the countryside robbing banks and killing the lawmen set out to stop them. Their actions became part of pop culture lore and the leaders of these gangs like Bonnie and Clyde, John Dillinger and Pretty Boy Floyd filled the headline hungry tabloids of the day. Al Capone, who headed up his own vast, crime filled organization in Chicago, may have acted like a CEO but his response to enemies, without and within, was no less murderous and destructive. Dealers in Death: Murder and Mayhem in America tells the stories of these notorious criminals and the U.S. government's attempt and eventual success to bring them to justice and break their stranglehold on the public's imagination. Legendary Hollywood actor Broderick Crawford lends his distinctive voice to the narrative and takes us on a compelling journey of America's infamous past.

nothing new
12 November 2009 | by romero_vincentSee all my reviews

I have Dealers in Death on VHS which is about depression era gangsters.We have all seen stories throughout the years about those gangsters so the only new thing on the tape is newsreel footage that appears to be new, and footage of page one headlines from various newspapers from different cities.Nothing new here, all footage is in black and white. It would have been nice if there were closed captioning or subtitles for the hearing and hearing impaired. Broderick Crawford does the commentary and I don't know how old he was when he did this, but there were times when he slurred his words and didn't pronounced clearly and could not make out what he was saying.
