Roger Touhy, Gangster!

1944, Movie, NR, 65 mins

A sloppy crime melodrama which claims to be a factual record of Chicago gangster Roger Touhy, but is nothing more than a weak B picture. Foster's story begins in the Prohibition era with a highly profitable bootlegging enterprise that rivals that of the city's toughest mobster (an unnamed Al Capone). To put a lid on the competition, Foster is framed for kidnaping and sent to Stateville with a 199-year sentence. With cohort McLaglen (cast as Basil "The Owl" Banghart, the only other named personality in the film), Foster engineers a prison break only to be captured by the FBI soon afterward. The film's grand finale has Stateville's warden sternly warning the audience...
