THE ST. VALENTINE'S DAY MASSACRE (1967) (BLU-RAY)
Starring:  Jean Hale, Bruce Dern, Ralph Meeker, James Robards, George Segal, Frank Silvera, Joseph Campanella
Directed By:  Roger Corman
Composed By:  Various

“A slam-bang, gutsy recreation of the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre, a 1929 gangland sensation of Chicago…Salty dialog and violence are motivated properly, and solid production values recreate a by-gone era.”
—Variety

“Corman’s direction is better than ever, with moving cameras and careful attention to details…thoughtful and well-conceived.”
—Glenn Erickson, DVD Talk

“One of Corman’s best films…The elaborate intrigue of the gang warfare is treated in a hard, almost documentary style, with newsreel-type commentary.”
—Time Out London

The singular Roger Corman directs The St. Valentine’s Day Massacre (1967), a study of the events—and striking personalities—leading to gangland Chicago’s most infamous episode. Jason Robards stars as the fearsome Al Capone, with chilling support from Ralph Meeker, George Segal, and David Canary, all revealed to us in crisp documentary style thanks to a smart script by Howard Browne. Excoriated in its day for its unvarnished violence, it has emerged in recent years as a respected cult favorite.

Saw this in the theater when it came out and it's great to see it on blueray at last. If you like 20's and 30's gangster movies this is a must for your collection.

ps I never knew it was directed by Roger Corman!
