A secretive cadre of crime – The Black Hand – has tightened its grip on New York City’s Little Italy of the early 1900s. Merchants are threatened, some horribly beaten. Citizens cower in fear rather than testify about crimes they’ve witnessed. And everyone dreads the extortion notes that say Pay or Die. But police lieutenant Joe Petrosino is determined to end the spree of terror. He sets up a special squad of investigators, systematically attempts to root out the criminals and makes a discovery he never expected: The Black Hand is directly tied to the Mafia. Ernest Borgnine plays Petrosino in this hard-hitting, fact-based crime saga directed by Richard Wilson, who created a stir the prior year with the gangster saga Al Capone (starring Rod Steiger).

**Please be aware that this is a manufactured on demand disc that was created using a DVD-R disc. It should play in all standard DVD players.

Comments about this product:

This movie was made after Borgnine won the Oscar for his portrayal in "Marty" in 1955, but the movie seemed almost amateurish - as if it were a student's first production.

But it was a refreshing experience nonetheless. The scenes in Little Italy felt honestly inspired, and while sometimes a little stiff and staged, it wasn't hard to imagine them actually happening. I felt this would provide a good background for the understanding of the Italian Immigrant experience for someone completely unfamiliar with this history.
