Old Gangster Movie

Recommended Posts

  • 2 months later...

I have just joined this site and I'm certain there never was a Purple Gang movie from the 1930's or 1940's.


Note Hollywood was afraid of organized crime and never ever would have used the title "Purple Gang" during the 1930'or 40's.


Even when Hollywood released Scareface "Big Al" was allowed a special screening and he loved it! Please help me push for a all 1930's gangster movie Friday for every month.


Have you ever seen a 1930's movie where the cops and the gangsters shot it out face to face and kill each other in mass? If you have sen the movie I mentioned please name it. The plot revolves around a guy who is a police chief who has a brother that turns gangster.

The older movie in which the cops & the gangsters shoot it out & (mostly) kill each other, including 1 brother who's a cop & 1 who's involved with the gang is "The Beast of the City" (1932) starring Walter Huston & Wallace Ford as the brothers.


The movie about the Purple Gang is called "The Purple Gang", released 1959 starring Barry Sullivan.


If anyone is interested in obtaining either of these films, e-mail me at nghtwlkr109@aol.com
