SYNOPSIS:Karloff is Tony Ricca, a notorious bootlegger locked in a mortal struggle with former ally Mike Palermo (Leo Carillo)-even as their children fall in love.
This Prohibition-era twist on "Romeo and Juliet," featuring up-and-comer Robert Young as Karloff's son Marco and Constance Cummings as the young Maria Palermo, reflected a turn in the tide of public opinion against mobsters, who had long been glamorized in the movies.
With photography by four-time Academy Award nominated special effects designer, director and cinematographer Byron Haskin (1939's The Roaring Twenties, 1953's The War of the Worlds), the film paints a tense portrait of crime during the Great Depression.
