Nitti: The Enforcer ★★ 1988 (PG-13)

Made-for-TV saga about Al Capone's brutal enforcer and right-hand man, Frank Nitti. Diversified cast (Moriarty in particular) do their best to keep things moving along, and the atmosphere is consistently and appropriately violent. Made to capitalize on the success of 1987's “The Untouchables.” 94m/C VHS, DVD . Anthony La Paglia, Vincent Guastaferro, Trini Alvarado, Michael Moriarty, Michael Russo, Louis Guss, Bruno Kirby; D: Michael Switzer.
