Description by OLDIES.com:

Sentenced to 15 years in prison, former mob "button man" Joe Valachi (Charles Bronson) turns informant when he learns top Mafia capo Vito Genovese (Lino Ventura) has put a $100,000 contract out on his life. From thievery and extortion to vengeance and murder, Valachi spills the innermost workings of La Cosa Nostra, culminating in his riveting testimony before a Senate subcommittee on organized crime. Based on Peter Maas' bestselling book, The Valachi Papers is a gripping, shocking and absolutely true, "a hard-hitting, violence-ridden documented melodrama of the underworld" (Variety).

Product Description:

Based on Peter Mass's bestseller dramatizing the testimony of Joseph Valachi, a high-ranking member of Cosa Nostra, THE VALACHI PAPERS unfolds in flashback as the protagonist (Charles Bronson, THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN) tells all to the authorities. Mob attempts on his life while he's in prison have persuaded him to spill the beans, and the film proceeds as an episodic account of Mafia history between 1929 and 1963, during which time Valachi worked for notorious boss Vito Genovese (Lino Ventura).
