Description by OLDIES.com:
Return to the violent years of the Prohibition Era in these true stories of New York's notorious gangland bootleggers, bookmakers, thugs and killers -- straight from the man who arrested them all. Based on the memoirs of Detective Barney Ruditsky, commanding officer of the city's famed Gangster Squad, The Lawless Years
focuses on organized crime and high-profile gangsters, as did The Untouchables,
which debuted the very same year.
Billy Grimes: After an unsuccessful attempt on his life, Detective Ruditsky investigates to discover who ordered the hit.
Ike The Novelty King: A novelty shop owner invents a new weapon that would allow mobsters to break up labor strikes without resorting to murder.
Romeo And Rose: A hit man who runs off and marries his intended victim, finds himself targeted for death.
The Big Man: When a gangster "falls" from a building to his death, Ruditsky is determined to prove that it was not an accident.
