EVERY film in 'Gangsters: The Aurum Film Encyclopedia' (Phil Hardy, editor; Aurum Press, 1998)

Gangster movies have captivated me ever since I was a child, growing up in the 70's, and watched both them and related crime, police and detective shows on TV with my mother, to whom they were like manna from Heaven. Discovering ANY hidden filmic gems, especially from the 20's-60's (my favourite cinematic timeframe) has always been a captivating passion for me--hence, this book came to my attention, at my local university's library. Films are listed chronologically in the book--thus they're in no alphabetical order here. Hit 'Read Notes' for information from the book that you may find rewarding. If IMDb info has differed from the book's, I have always gone with IMDb's--just so you know.
