FULL SYNOPSIS

powered by AFI

Eliot Ness is convinced that syndicate graft is buying local police protection when a raid on the headquarters of Al Capone's gang proves unsuccessful. After receiving the support of the district attorney, Ness picks several reliable men from the Treasury Department and sets up a special office in Chicago. The Treasury agents establish the whereabouts of one of Capone's stills, and Capone henchman Frank Nitti offers Ness a bribe to leave it alone; but Ness steps up the raids, and as a result the mob votes to have Ness killed. Ness places an informer in the gang's headquarters and closes six more breweries. Capone, released from jail, returns to declare an all-out war on Ness and his men. He breaks the wire tap, kills the informer, and hires Jimmy Napoli to murder Ness. Soon afterward, the government puts together a tax-evasion case against Capone, and he is sentenced to 11 years in prison.
