Based on the shocking, true story of a criminal gang who terrorized Brooklyn for years, and featuring "excellent performances" (Films in Revies) by a fine cast - including Oscar nominee Peter Falk in an early role - Murder, Inc. delievers its terrifying tale of corruption run amok with riveting intensity! In the violent burroughs of 1930s New York, gangs spawned by Prohibition have found new work...as racketeers and contract killers. The most vicious of these is Murder, Inc., the merciless Brownsville, Brooklyn syndicate. As their reign of terror spreads, one cop (Henry Morgan) has the nerve to methodically track them down, determined to destroy them by any means necessary!
MURDER, INC. uses the true story of Louis "Lepke" Buchhalter, the capo of a notorious crime syndicate, as the backdrop for the fictional narrative about a nightclub singer and a dancer.
